No idea how fast but they grow to the surface and then spread out. I've read you should remove the surface leaves before they get there otherwise thats all you'll have and it will shade out the tank.

The leaves will reach the surface of your tank. I have a nymphea lotus, and my tank is 2' high and the leaves are easily reaching the top, at which point, I chop them off at the bulb.

I've just been looking on plant geek and the leaves more like A.crispus than the other that was mentioned. Could it be this?
And if so how big and fast does it grow? as it doesnt tell you on plantgeek.

Thanks again.

According to the Tropica catalogue A. crispus grows to a hight of 25-50cm and a width of 15-30cm, it has an above average growth rate (4 out of 5 wich translates as fast)
