Subject: Aponogeton undulatus

     I bought a small and unassuming (what turned out to be) Aponogeton 
undulatus while visiting my folks over Thanksgiving.  When I got it, it had 
about 5 leaves, each maybe 6" long.  Well, most of the original leaves were 
damaged in transit.  But, in the 3 weeks since Thanksgiving, this thing has 
put out at least 10 leaves, each around 18" long!  The leaf surfaces are 
around 12" x 2.5" and the leaf stalks are around 6" - 8".  This growth has 
been unbelievable!  I've read that there is a period of dormancy after 
flowering of 2 - 3 months.  Has anyone got any other experience with this
