    If I used the phrase “tropical onion bulb” would anyone know what species of plant I was talking about? And how to keep them? I’ll post pics tomo of some that I have picked up.

    This is a picture of one of my biggest Crinum thianum that was over 5ft tall

    This was grown to this size in an 18″ deep tank.

    Ideally you only want the roots in the substrate for them to grow best, if any of the bulb itself is under the substrate they can start to rot and die

    Crinum natans looks very similar but has crinkly edged leaves
