Leaf size is strongly related to how well a plant is doing.  If a 
plant is unhappy, whether from crowding or other unfavorable 
conditions, it is not at all uncommon for the plant to remain 
stunted as well as to put out fewer (or no) runners.  Whether it 
will remain large depends on whether it remains happy.

That's about all you can do.  Keep us posted.
