I've read that they are perennial, so maybe they need a winter break? Also, I looked at the USDA PlantsDatabse and they seemed to be located naturally in cooler climates.

So, maybe they need a rest period like some of the Apons. do? Maybe cooler temps in the aquarium? Also it says they are found on stony/rocky soil, so they may rot out if buried too deeply (like Anubias).
Other than that little bit, I know nothing about them, never have kept them.

Here's another site, but you've probably already seen this:
