    This is exactly why I asked the question and what I was hoping for, but alas the experienced have spoken. It appears I have a slight issue.

    I have the same issue on my reniformis net pot. Also, the reniformis really needs a bigger pot. Mine is in a 14" net pot, and is beginning to sprout leaves from all over the surface, despite the fact that it is around a month old.
    Hope I helped!

    I've 'discovered' the same phenomena. However, I've been unable to create these same hyper-successful conditions within a pot (yet). Until I do, in one tank, I 'allowed' U. humboldtii to escape and inhabit the lower regions. Based on the size & vigor of that plant, I allowed another clone to do the same in a 2nd tank. A month or two ago, I also did it with U. nelumbifolia in a 3rd tank & 'seeded' a 4th small tank w/ U. quelchii - but I think I used too small of a piece because it hasn't taken off like all the others (figures).

    I've also had the same hyper-growth experience when a Nep escapes into this live LFS layer...
    All the best,

    I'm still waiting for my U. quelchii to do ANYthing. I think it's still dormant. Let's see how it does. I have it in a net in live LFS. Not a net pot, a net, like what those chocolate coins come in.
