Crinum thaianum

Quick question, would onion plant, Crinum thaianum, benefit from substrate ferts? As in plant tabs. Thanks in advance.

Crinum spp. can grow extensive root systems over time and would likely benefit from root tabs. Crinum also do a good job of pulling nutrients from the water column so either form of fertilization seems to work, but additional root ferts might cause increased growth.

Thanks travis. Have one now, growing nicely, but want to add a few more. Thus the question.
