Crinum NATANS! (The Ultimate Monster Plant)
The Ultimate Aquarium Plant. If I could have any job in the world, what would it be.
Finding, retrieving and healing up plants like these.... It's the one on my T-shirts, It's the plant that over time has taken over my 220 gallon aquarium...
If Indiana Jones were an aquarium plant hunter, this would be the plant he would be going after. Straight up, a tribe leader in Africa was paid for rights to collect these plants on his lands.
These are Crinum Natan.
These plants came in CUT way back. Further back than I would have liked actually. (There is a balance of how many can you fit in the box, the more you fit the cheaper the shipping, and the more work for Dustin and crew)
We had these plants for 9 days now. (We got them in This has been a great challenge for us. A challenge and a labor of love I have been enjoying. Growing out one of my favorite plants in my new Greenhouse 2.0 where i have the capacity to do so.
To say I am happy with the results is an understatement. You know how when you breed dogs they have the "Pick of the litter" These 20 are the pick of the liter. These are the 20 best plants I have hand selected.
This is some of my best work. These are some of my best plants. (Some with runners, some that are starting to flower.)
You will receive one of the 20 plant (the photo with 2 rows of 10)
NOT THE HUGE ONE OVER WHITE (that's my own Pick of the liter for me) READ AND LOOK AT CUSTOMERS PHOTOS. Ours in house as of 4-20 are BETTER than the 20 in the photos and better than the Customer's pictures :)
To unsure the proper care of these babies we are ONLY Selling them in combination with our Growth Juice at this time. These are wild collected plant. They are now in extremely good health and we want to keep it that way.
We have Two options.
1. The C. Natans Growth Juice Combo.
You will get ONE Hand picked Crinum Natans and a 500ml Bottle of our Growth Juice ($39.95)
2. The Ultimate Crinum Natans Combo.
One hand picked Crinum Natans, One 500 ml Bottle of Growth Juice and One 500m ML bottle of Iron for $49.95
YES- We will be selling them individually next week when more are grown out and up to our standards. They will be $29.95 each.
CRINUM CARE: Crinum come from Africa. When you hear Africa think Cichlids and HARD WATER. Now, you might not know if you have hard water, but these plants enjoy a higher mineral content. This can easily be achieve by adding crushed coral, dolamite or aragonite to your aquarium. (If you are social distancing like you should be, crushed egg shells!)
Don't over think the hard water. Our Growth Juice and Iron will keep your plants healthy. (How the heck do you think we have grown them out?)
LIGHTING: We have found that the fastest way to grow these plants (and basically ANY Plants is with high light. That said, I have been growing my MONSTER Crinum Natans for years under medium to low light aquarium that is 30 inches tall.... and my Crinum Natans is now about 60 inches tall.
SUBSTRATE: We have tested this plant in dirt and in plain old pea gravel. It has done better in dirt. (Shocker) BUT is still growing in plain gravel. NOTE: MY Friend Bryan also has NEVER done a dirted aquarium and has a Crinum Natans that is second only to mine in my 220.
You will receive one of the plants in the TWO Rows of 10 photos. The photo was taken on 3-19. They will ship Monday, 3-23. The stalks are between 3/4 of an inch or way more. You will have some slightly brown edges, and brown in spots. This is just how the plant travels. THEY ARE HEALTHY. You are looking at the plants we are selling.
The bigger they get, the more they will cost. Grab one NOW.
This plant has quickly become my favorite. Ordered 1 got a plus one. Arrived great, no melt and packaged perfect as always.
I ordered one bulb with the growth juice to start, was sent 2 bulbs! Both of them were in good shape and after melting back just a tiny bit, both plants have really come alive! I have pretty hard water that i'm sure resembles their natural setting, and after watching videos of Dustin drilling home "Increase your water flow" I purchased a pump for the tank and point it in the Crinum Corner of my tank. New growth has been coming in what feels like everyday a new leaf is coming in! Dustin definitely takes good care of these plants as well as his customers. Thanks Dustin and crew!
Wanted a monster plant for a monster tank. Bought one but was sent an extra smaller one! Very happy.
just got my ordder the otherday and did my first dose of growth juice so do not know yet but plants were great already starting to show new growth went to reorder this same order and says it is out of stock now wow that sucks so i hope youoffer the same deal again so i can get plant an fert together thank you las vegas
These were actually a little smaller than I thought they would be however I only ordered 1 and got 2. Which if you have any patience you know that is a way better deal. Sorry the picture isn't so good. These guys I stuck in my 75g which I've been sticking random large plants in and I need to redo it. I can't wait to get some plant substrate in there and watch these babies grow.
