The flowers will be different. Long has two spikes and crispus has one per
Many times you'll get crispus instead of longiplum/capuroni if you order
them. Then after the plant is growing etc you come to fine out they have
only one single floral stalk. Barron's Aquarium Plants Manual by I.
Schurmann  has a nice photo of A.longi. It's a good book and cheap(about
5-6$ or so). A.capuroni is a neat plant. There are no photo's around to show
what it looks like that I'm aware of though. Guess I'll have to get on it!
