I am wondering if you have A. guilotii, since you are saying it is so big.
A. guilotii has flowers with 5 pink spikes, is self-sterile, and can get
too big even for a 75 gallon tank. (Petioles of the leaves reach the
surface.)  Its leaves are long and narrow, compared to the other two
Aponogeton species.
