was unaware they were different forms =O my water sprite has a stem on it that's about 12-13 inches tall. that stem or node or not sure correct term has stopped goriwng upwards and now seems to just be bushing out. its seems there are new runners from the taller stem node or w/e weekly. anyway you think i could force this plant to get taller or has it more then likely got as tall as it can.

I'm not understanding the "stem" point, perhaps a photo?

As I said previously, a rosette plant usually has a maximum size, at least according to botanical data, which is maximum when the plant has what it needs in terms of light and nutrients, space, no adverse issues, etc. The length would depend also on the species.

water sprites sprout leaves from a central point near the roots where water wisteria sprouts leaves from a central sten :) sometimes the water wisteria has really thick central veins for their leaves which may be mistaken for a stem ^_^

Back in the days of under gravel air pump driven filters and incandescent light, my water sprites (Indian Ferns) routinely grew to the top of the 29g I had and were big full plants. Now I can't even successfully use them as floaters.
