The Crinum Calamistratumis a very graceful bulbous plant with dark green leaves that are strongly curled and crimped at the edges. The numerous firm and leathery leaves are reminiscent of the arms of an octopus. The bulbous appearance of the leaves will add a unique touch to the green in your aquarium, and on top of that, they are incredibly easy to care for, making them suitable for beginners.
For whom is the Crinum Calamistratum suited?
This aquatic plant is absolutely suited for beginners, especially for those who do not want their plants to dominate their tanks fully. They grow at a rather slow pace and do not require any special care to be healthy.
What are they like?
When the Crinum Calamistratum reaches the surface in open aquaria, they sometimes form beautiful white flowers, adding a gracious touch to the appearance of your tank. Their slow growth allows them to easily co-exist with other plants, so long as they can receive sufficient lighting.
The ideal conditions for the Crinum Calamistratum
The Crinum Calamistratum is very forgiving when it comes to the conditions in your aquarium. They can thrive in both slightly acidic and alkaline waters at temperatures between 12 °C – 30 °C, and the hardness of your water doesn't really matter much. They don't require intensive lighting, and supplementation with fertilizer is generally not required.

Unique plant delivered healthy and seems to be growing already after only 11 days. This is my first time buying from Flip Aquatics and would definitely buy from them again.
Except for the red and pink plants, I purchased all these plants from Flip. It's my first fish tank and I'm excited to get into the hobby. The crinum calamistratum plant is very cool and whips around in every direction and seems to stay suspended midwater.
More than happy with every aspect of my order. Timeliness, condition, price, quality and size. In fact,I believe the portion of Water Wisteria I received could be measured in acres!
Thank you all!
I'll be back
The Crinum I received from Flip Aquatics are beautiful, healthy plants. I was not expecting them to be such a good size plant either! So far every plant I've ordered from here has been in excellent condition, packed well and shipped quickly. I'll be back for more plants!
The plant is doing fine so far. Really like the look as it's different from anything else I have.
