Default Crypts go dormant? and grow?

I've had a great little crypt wenditti, grew big for 8 months, then
stopped... leaves started looking tattered, and edges started curling, then
stopped growing...

Pruned a little here and there over 3 or 4 weeks, but couldn't "kick" it to
grow anymore.... so I left it...

Yesterday, I noticed that I've got 12-15 runners, rhyzomes, whatever,
growing about 6 inches from the parent plant... I left them, and will
probably allow them to come in as they would, but I wondered, do they grow
rhyzomes while in dormancy? Or did some pruning spur the growth?

Flourite substate
Dosed with flourish after every water change
55w over 29g
Injected CO2, lower amounts
pH of 6.8

Crypts are infamous for dying off and then growing back. Generally, it's a
change in the tank that causes it. Transplanting, pruning, a change in water
parameters, etc., and the crypts might melt. Leave them alone, and they always
come back.

Full moons and negative thinking does it, too. I recently wrote about a red
wendt I'd completely forgotten ever having had that spontaneously
remanifested itself in the middle of a clump of sags.

LOL! And don't forget, looking at 'em cross-eyed. Don't look at 'em
cross-eyed, or they'll melt overnight. g

I dunno, for all the crypt hating that goes on, mine have never melted, and
they have been moved multiple times. They ddintt even melt after I recieved
them, and they had been in the mail for 4 days, in cold New England weather.
The anubias that came with them died in the mail, but the crypts are doing
great.
