I found 1 strand in the roots of a java fern 4 weeks after I purchased it. I don't know how I missed it.

Anyway, how can I nurse it along so that it propagates faster?

We don’t talk about susswassertang club.  Don’t think about, don’t look at it, and don’t move it to another tank.  Just let it be and it will either acclimate or perish.  If it disappears, just wait.  It could still come back.  It’s a bit fickle sometimes, but if it likes where it’s at you’ll soon be pulling out handfuls of it.

It likes a bit of flow, but nothing strong enough to batter it around.  It doesn’t mind fish that don’t thrash around in it, but it’s not fond of living with big cories.  It would probably be fine with dwarf cories.  It’s great fry or shrimplet cover but good luck getting shrimp back out of it.  It tends to fragment and will often scatter and spread if roughed up.  It holds on to duckweed like mad if you have duckweed that gets pushed down into it by an HOB’s overflow (ask me how I know this).  When happy, it will grow into giant mounds.
