Crinum macowanii

Botho172
Specifications
Crinum macowanii
Crinum macowanii is a bulbous plant from the southeast of Africa belonging to the Amaryllidaceae. The plant grows naturally along river banks, in rocky grassland and in tree groves. The local name is river lily; this makes it clear that it is a moisture-negative crop, especially during the growth period. Like other members of the Amaryllidaceae family, this bulb is used in traditional medicine in southern Africa and has become rare in nature due to mass harvesting.

Plant care

Crinum macowanii has bulbs with a diameter of up to 25 cm. The bulbs and fleshy roots are fragile and easily damaged. They prefer to be planted in a large container or the ground and should be transplanted or repotted as little as possible. Keep them dry and frost-free in winter. In warm sheltered environments it can winter outside, but should be covered against moisture and frost! In the spring give it plenty of water and food. This Crinum is too big for a living room.
