It seems that individual lace plants respond differently, at least based 
upon the experiences of others.  Apparently, some do require a dormant 
period and those usually die at that point when grown in an aquarium.  On 
the other hand, a few grow continuously and few people that have had 
success seem to have that type of plant.

As was indicated in my previous post, I have grown one for about nine 
months and it is still is producing new leaves.
