In real life stalagmites form when a stalactite above it drips water onto the ground. It would be an interesting game mechanic if similarly to how pointed dripstone with water above it fills a cauldron with water, if the pointed dripstone drips onto a dripstone block or a block of pointed dripstone there should be a chance for a new piece of pointed dripstone. Additionally when a stalagmite drips down in real life, some of the sediment that drops to the floor stays on its tip causing it to grow. The upside down pointed dripstone could also grow when it drips.
This could be an interesting way for dripstone to be renewable.
