My Crinum natans are blooming!!!!...new pics added

I have 2 C. natans in my tank. They are huge....
Anyway, today both of them threw a giant stalk with blooms. Since I have never seen one in bloom, I thought I would post it for all to see. It was a quick shot, so sorry for the poor quality shot...

Hi Linny, great to see you on the forums, hope all is well. Show us more photos as it develops. Hope to see you back with more regularity soon.

Your "Bloom" would be a nice addition to any forum... Keep the photos coming. I too use Acrylic Tanks for my Planted holdings.

What are your specs to get such GOOOD results?

Thanks

Does your crinum produce seeds? I have the curly crinum and have not seen blooms but I have these flat little brown disks. It is the only thing I can think they are (onion seeds).

I believe they produce seeds, just as reported by a fellow local hobbist with crinums in his pond here. He helped to pollinate the flowers and they form seeds, which germinate under water.

dmb thanks.
My specs are in the signature.
I will post more pics as it opens. I would guess it will look like an anubias or spath, but we will see.
My Crinums are so big now, I will have to get rid of them when I set up the new tank as they take up half of my 90gal...lol
They are beautiful though.

They are rosette type plants, bulb-like base
They are slow growers but get very large, as I am finding out. yes I got my new setup, but do not plan on setting it up until I move. That is the plan.
Shockingly enough, with 2 deaths in the family in the past 4 months and a job change, I hadn't had a chance to set up a new tank....weird I know

I can't even imagine. Just remember we are here when you're ready.

And as far as jungly, I think I saw some little guys saying "Kong..Kong" in there.

Lets say, I have anubias, Crinum and C Balnsae up the wazoo....not to mention the buckets full of moss I toss every week. Not to mention 100's of shrimp!

It is insane! When I have to break it down and move, you guys can come over and "go shopping" in there and take what you want
