Description:

Florida Aquatic Nurseries grows the aquarium plant Crinum natans.  Crinum natans has long flowing leaves with undulating margins.  Crinum natans is best used as a centerpiece in the planted aquarium to show off its decorative assets.  In nature Crinum natans lives through wet and dry periods with its bulb storing energy for the difficult times. Large white flowers adorn Crinum natans while emersed and sometimes even while submerged.
