accelorate coraline growth

I recently acquired about 40-50lbd of LR (from established tank) with about 1/4 good coraline growth. I will not be ready to put in display tank for 2-3 weeks. I have it in a Rubbermain vessel with 2 PH, heater and lighting. Is there any way to take advantage of not having anything else with it and accelorate the coraline growth. I realize that 2-3 weeks isn't much time for new growth, but just checking if there are any tricks.

i think if you can get some 03 on that rock the coralline will grow fast.

I have (1) 96W 10,000K and (1) 96W 03 on them 12hrs. I wonder if I left the lights on 24/7 if that would help. There is nothing else in the tank and very little for nuisance algae to prosper.

Did that as well. Also added some calcium and strontium too.
