    I wish I knew!!! I've always struggled with getting polyp extension. My cali tort - one of my centerpieces - and many folks here have frags of it - I have almost no polyp extension. Yet it start to have have polyp extension when placed in other folks talks. Go figure. My best guess is flow. @Sponge@Sponge - has always told me I need more flow. I have been increasing flow over the last couple of years - and I now have polyp extension of several of my new pieces - like the OP. My sunset milli has huge polyp extension as does my walt disney. Maybe even a bit on my cali tort.
