There is some very good information on aquatic crinums in the PBS list archives. It seems to have started with a question from Jim Waddick, and quite a few people made comments with Alani Davis and Alberto Grossi providing some good information about their efforts to grow and flower them. The two search terms that brought up the most hits were “aquatic crinum” and “thaianum”.
