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

This plant loves my tank. It has never melted back or looked ragged, nor has it tried to take over the tank. The crinkly leaves do grow to the surface, and move like an octopus in the flow. It is a more polite plant than vallisneria in that it doesn't push and shove and take over.
This is my favorite plant in my tank. It’s growing quickly and looks so good! I ordered 9-10 different types of plants. My order arrived quickly and the plants were all in great condition upon arrival. I wish I would have ordered double of all of them because I love them all and now want them in my second tank
Love the Crinum. Came in great shape and already filling out the 10g.👍
I love the way this plant looks. Very unique. It arrived quickly, in excellent condition. I plan on purchasing more very soon!
I’m so very pleased with my plants. I’ve ordered from another place and boy was the comparison like night and day. I’ll order from y’all from now on. The service is also very good. Thanks
