Crinum natans grows rather slowly and is not very demanding. It tolerates hard water with pH values up to 8. However the plant needs a high substrate layer (about 10 cm or more) for its strong root system. The onion should stick out from the ground, otherwise it may rot. The plant is nutrient-demanding and benefits much from bottom fertilization. Medium lighting is sufficient, but stronger light enhances a more wavy margin of the leaves. The favourable temperature range is about 22-30 °C. With time, daughter plants may appear on the base of the onion that can be detached for propagation.

This big underwater plant from tropical Africa is best placed in the midground to background of large tanks. It is especially appropriate for stream biotope aquariums; open tanks are also adorned by the beautiful emersed flowers that occasionally develop on the plant. As its leathery leaves remain unaffected by fish, Crinum natans is also suitable for Tanganyika and Malawi lake cichlid aquariums.

Notes:

  • If received in a pot, please remove all rock wool from the roots. Where possible we try and ship without pots or rockwool. Due to them being non-biodegradable we prefer to propagate in an environmentally conscious way.
  • CO2 will generally yield better growth rates.
  • Stable water conditions are a must, changes should occur over a period of time in order to reduce chances of melting etc.
