Crinum Calamistratum (Crazy Hardy Aquarium Plant)
A SMALL is under 5 inches with 5 or 6 leaves around an inch. The have decent stalk.
A Medium is between 5 and 7 inches with up to 10 leaves
A Large will have a thicker base and well over 10 leaves (and shouldn't be missed...
If you want a unique looking plant for contrast in your tank, Crinum Calamistratum is that plant. It has ridged kinda skinny ruffled leaves on it. I have kept this plant for a number of years and have even debated just keeping it alone all by its self. It does take a second to establish itself in the aquarium. Crinum Calamistratum might even have one inch sections on the tips of its leaves turn yellow in the move. Not to worry it will come back.
NOTE: This plant requires an excellent, nutrient rich substrate. (Dirt is what I keep it in) Don't try to keep Crinum Calamistratum in plain old gravel. Crinum is also a plant that responds directly to a huge water change. I swear I have almost watched them grow with a large water change. I love this plant, its so unique looking and always gets comments in my tank. If you have been keeping a planted tank successfully for a year or so. You should try out a Crinum Calamistratum

Omg! The cutest curly lil bulb ever! I have seen how big they grow! I cannot wait! Apparently my private acct won’t post pictures. I would love to show you my previous purchased plants in a new tank. Also my new ones! Never ever let down by plants or custom services!
One of the coolest looking plants I have in my tank. Can’t wait to see it grow
My order was excellent except for the size of the Crinums.
They were small for the price.
(These were the reason I ordered in the first place.)
However...the Anubis and the lotus bulb are impressive. It balances out.
Enjoy the interactive nature of this business. Will order again because Dustin is fun to talk to.
Just as I expected to be.
I don't know the name, but I received a delicate, spiny plant with a large root and 100% healthy. It's thriving in my tank and adds just the touch I was hoping for.
