It depends on your water parameter, lighting and available nutrients.

Different morphs spread at different speeds also.

Like they said all spread at different rates. They must be fed either by fish poop or target feeding.

Zoas are an odd critter. I've had two of the exact same zoa side by side, where one colony is happy and the other wasn't. Differences in flow are extremely important with zoas, and any other type of soft coral IMO.
So, to keep zoas happy and healthy, the answer is simple. Have proper lighting above the tank. If they don't open up, try a different spot with a different flow pattern. When they are happy they will spread. This can vary from zoa to zoa. A poor way of looking at it is that the more expensive or rare the zoa, the slower it will grow. Though a poor way of looking at it, it always seems to hold water when I look at it.

highly disagree. I do not feed my zoas and do not have live stock. they get most of their food from the light we provide. trying to target feed zoas is more likely to cause excessive nutrients which could cause further issues.

I bought 6 eagle eyes about 7 months ago now there are about 70. I also bought 6 tubs blue 5 months ago now I have like 12. Last week I bought two mindblower palys now are 6. All of them have very weird tastes I think. It's trial and error...
