Crinum thaianum is a distinctive bulbous plant belonging to the lily
family. It is undemanding apart from the fact that it needs plenty of space.
Plant so the top 2/3 of the bulb is visible, because otherwise the bulb tends to
rot. When the plant grows older it sometimes sends a flower stem up to the water
surface with an aromatic, elegant lily flower. Herbivorous fish leave it alone
due to its tough leaves. In Thailand the bulb is used in a cream used to soften
the skin. It is also suitable for indoor ponds.
