Looking for Native African Plants


So far I only know of anubias, bolbitis and ceratopteris. What are other low light plants from africa?

That might not work well in my low light tank. I think I'm sticking to ceropteris and anubias for now. Hopefully I'll find more.

Tiger lotus will grow in low light. Crinum are also from Africa but need higher light.
