Crinum calamistratum is an aquatic plant native to Africa.  Long flowing leaves with tightly undulating margins are the highlight of this striking plant.  Crinum calmistratum is best used as a centerpiece for display in the aquarium.  Like other Crinum sp. Crinum calamistratum has a bulb to help it last through periods of low water in the natural environment and can even grow completely emersed in very humid conditions.  Crinum calamistratum has large white flowers and typically flowers while emersed although it will sometimes flower in the aquarium, sending its lovely bloom up above the water surface for some lucky aquarists.
