Thanks for the reply, Rachel. I'm almost wondering if I should tear out my
tall patch and propagate a set of plants from the short patch. Given that
there aren't any environmental differences I can identify between the two
sides of the tank, I have to wonder if there's some sort of chemical
messenger that's being passed between the plants that somehow affects their
shape and size.

Perhaps I try cutting the runners to some very young plants on the tall
side and see if the plants still grow large. That might be an interesting
