The Onion Plant (Crinum thaianum) has long, ribbon-like green leaves that may eventually reach several feet in length. It gets its name from its resemblance to the onion plants often grown in gardens on land.

Crinum plants grow from a light colored bulb. When planting, leave at least a third of the bulb exposed from the substrate to prevent it from rotting. These plants can tolerate a wide range of water conditions and are one of the few plants that can be kept in very low-salinity brackish water aquariums. They can also be kept in most African cichlid aquariums with hard water and higher pH conditions. While the leaves may still be nibbled, most herbivorous fish will not eat the very tough, fiber-y leaves of many Crinums.
