Environment Specifics

A relatively hardy plant as long as it is provided with enough light, it requires higher light levels than other species of Crinium. It is not usually eaten by herbivorous fish and can tolerate low end brackish conditions. Plants that are thriving form a number of small bulbs. When planting this plant, the bulb must not be fully buried, the majority of it should remain above the substrate.

Identification

A striking graceful plant which grows from a bulb. The leaves are very narrow, dark green, tough and with ruffled edges.
