Crinum natans is a very beautiful and graceful bulbous plant with dark-green leaves. Plant so the top 2/3 of the bulb is visible. When the plant grows older (if it is thriving) it sometimes forms small bulbs and sends a flower stem up to the water surface with a beautiful and aromatic lily flower. The plant varies considerably in leaf width and the shape of the leaf margin. It is also suitable for indoor ponds, and is not eaten by herbivorous fish. [TROPICA]

This grows like crazy in my medium light (2.5 wpg T5) 120gal...you need a big tank for this, the leaves are 3 feet long. A showpiece of a plant.

I'm finding this plant to be extremely slow in getting going. Other plants that I planted at the same time have grown to the top of the tank but this one has remained frozen in time doing nothing for 2 months. It's under high light, high co2, plenty of ferts.
