    They will more or less stopp producing leafes closer to the substrate if you allow them to grow stalks. I would recommend that you got of all stalks until they have growned to the desired size near the substrate. Even after that you might want to limit the number of stalks to make sure that the submersed piece stays pretty.

    from my experience with a nymphaea stellata, they will, often and easily. I bought one and through various means(mostly extra shoots becoming little bulbs)
    I now have 5 or 6.

    My experience is with nymphaea lotus. It is possible that different species are more or less prune to do offshoots. N. lotus also do it but not enough for it to be worth waiting for them. But of course that also dependson what they cost in your area. I used to pau usd 3 for mine.

    The one bulb was part of a assorted pack fairly cheap. Ok so I think I'llkeep around 4-5stalks growing on top at all times and prune back old ones to keep in check. Don't know what it is about this tank but whatever I put in it does very well , fish and all. It is home to 8 TB's and four GAE's until they get to about 3ins. then they will be rehomed to larger TANKS.
