I'm not sure how fast they grow but if there are 2 pads shooting up for the 1st time now I'm going to have tie them to stay out of the way. Waiting to see if a flower comes up. Also curious I assume they absorb nitrates airly well.

mine look like they're growing as well - two of the four show marked growth, two not so much. It's far to early to tell, though. I hope my pads reach the surface soon :)

Once they find the surface all new growth shoots straight up the pads dont even open until they hit the surface. I think mine found the top after the water was low from a water change.
Edit: also I use co2 booster nightly. I use a cap full (I think thats for 100g) I probably have 135g of total water
