AZOO fertiliser company makes a fertiliser called Raw Hormone Zeatin or creatin or auxin or something which is good for preventing or inhibiting the dormant period that Aponogetons undergo. Even so, the dormancy is just that, a temporary period of dormancy like deciduous plants.

In nature Aponogetons don't get up and go to the fridge, so how could this help? The person must have found it worked somehow...

Those look very much like Aponogeton Crispus (Sri Lankan Sword).
Look very nice! Very Happy

See here for good info on dealing with the Aponogeton dormant period (scroll down the page to the bottom).

I have a Tiger Lotus in my tank which I bought as a bulb.
They grow very quickly and do take up a lot of space too, I love mine though! Very Happy
