Bet-settlin'-filter: Exponential pond scum growth?

Mrs. Everichon is convinced that there is a law or principle (as in "Foo's Law") which describes the phenomenon wherein a pond can take weeks to become 50% covered in algae, but then the remaining 50% takes only a day.

This isn't about algae or ponds, just the phenomenon.
The only thing I know to describe this is geometric (or exponential) growth. Anyone?
