    Just picked up a baby jawbreaker and I'm wondering how quickly they grow and if anyone feeds specifics things to make them grow faster

    Slow, very slow.
    I have a few and it takes time even to get the multi colors in there.
    The mother JB I got it from was just 7 years old but crazy colors on them.
    My friend told me close to 2 to three years before you will see that.

    It really depends on so many factors that it’s hard to say. I have a lot of discosoma mushrooms and some of them grow fast others grow slow. I’ve had others than don’t grow for months and once hey settle in they settle in they explode

    4 or 5 months of growth from 3 or 4 in my sons 14 gallon Nano.

    In my 75 it’s the tan and blue that go crazy

    Definately takes time for the original jawbreakers. I've got a few of them, and a couple just started to gain green specks. The red came a bit sooner.

    Ok thanks for everyone's input. Does anyone feed them?

    I've target fed reef roids to a large rhodactis before. I've never seen a feeding response from the jawbreakers so I haven't ever tried. They seem to thrive on their own

    I’ve had a pretty moderate growth rate you can see from the first to the second. I’ve had to switch there bowl to a larger one because how big mine have got. I can tell you mine love the low light and very little to no flow. I have to also tried to target feed be got no reaction.
