Narrow Crinum, Water onion
Crinum calamistratum is an African onion plant with resistant crepe leaves, which is not often found on the market.
The cultivation is not very difficult, a soft to medium water hardness and an almost neutral pH are suggested. The rich in nutrients substrate must be at least 8 cm high. A strong movement of the water encourages the growth. This species doesn’t grow fast and normally takes several months to become quite robust.
