Re: Aponogeton Ulvaceous (seasonal plants)

I understand that a. ulvaceous will go dormant. 

I have an additional question with regard to this topic. I have a. crispus in 
a 29 gallon tank. It's grown quite large and sits in the middle of the tank. 
I have to decide whether to remove this plant or a very large sword nearby, 
as the tank can't house 2 large centerpiece plants. Actually the crispus 
looks quite nice and I'd prefer to leave that, but if I remove the sword, and 
the crispus dies out, I'm left with a bare spot. 

Just wondering if there are occasional flukes and what the likeliehood would 
be of keeping the crispus growing and active.
