SubstrateSource Crinum calamistratum "Large African Onion" Live Aquarium Plant
SubstrateSource Crinum calamistratum "African Onion" is a fully aquatic, robust, bulb that produces flowing bullate leaves. The leaves are generally around 1/4 inch, thinner than it's cousin, Crinum natans. For best results, bury the bulb just to the top of the roots. The plant is grown in rockwool growing media inside of a 2 inch mesh pot. Each pot generally contains one bulb rooted into the media. Shipping and Packaging: Each pot is individually packaged in a recyclable, clear plastic bag. The plant is shipped, sealed with adequate moisture, but not completely submerged in water. Scissors may be required to open the bag. In the Aquarium: For optimal growth, provide this plant with an established freshwater aquarium with sufficient light, water circulation, and stable temperature. As with most aquatic varieties, this plant does benefit from supplemental nutrients and CO2, but these additions may not be required and depend on your setup and aquarium inhabitants. SubstrateSource Plant Guide: A plant guide is included with this plant. The guide contains brief care and illustrated setup instructions specific to this plant.
