Although it's heretic I've been told there is no such thing
as a dormancy period, that just indicates the plant ran out
of nutrients. I used to stick a planttab under the roots when
mine slowed down and sure enough they pick right up. From time
to time in the literature I see this mentioned, the most recent
was when I was giong through some back issues of the Dupla
magaine _Aquarium Today_.
