Aponogeton crispus is an aquatic bulb plant native to the island nation of Sri Lanka along with many of the other Aponogetons used in the Aquarium plant trade.  Aponogeton crispus is an excellent aquarium plant as the central focal point in a planted aquarium displaying long dark green leaves that have an undulating marign.  Aponogeton crispus are bulb plants and will sometimes go dormant to the bulb stage of the plant.  Just be patient and new leaves will begin to sprout.  Sometimes it is helpful to take the bulb out of the aquarium for a resting period and keep it stored in moist sand until leaves begin to sprout.  Then plant the Aponogeton bulb back into the aquarium.
