My cordifolius seedlings stayed small for two or three months.  They put on a 
few more narrow grass-like leaves, but the plants stayed small.  They didn't 
start growing adult-style leaves until after I planted them fully submersed 
in an aquarium.  I don't know whether they responded to the deeper water, to 
some other environmental change, or whether the time was finally right.
