Well, the Fireball-type Neo on the top left has grown, and the Neo down and to the right of that one has gotten some nice color. They're not really fast growers. I have better growth with mine when I keep them full of cleanish water, and when they have some sphagnum around their base that is watered daily or so.

Tough to see from the pics, but I'm not seeing any species that are really going to show a lot of growth. Do you have any close up pics of certain plants to illustrate your concerns?

I might here's the vines.. or one of my 50$ macgravias

Did the Marcgravia have much of a root system? I think that many times these things get sold as recent divisions. Plants have a give and take relationship between hormones produced at the roots and at shoots, auxins and cytokinins.

For example, without actively growing roots cytokinins aren’t present in great enough amounts to warrant rapid shoot growth. The opposite is true as well.

Hopefully as your Marcgravia become better established they will begin to grow rapidly.

You might want to try putting some Sphagnum moss under the marcgravia to get it established and then Kwong the moss damp. I've been told that will help it start rooting and growing. My marcgravia that I started in early August seems to be growing quite nicely using this method
