"I got a water onion recently. It was the only bulb in an assortment pack that grew, even though there was a beautiful Aponogeton crispus in the bunch. Anyhow, one of my fish found the Crinium/water onion delicious. At first, there was a little nibble out of it near the base. Soon, the entire root meristem was gone. The rest of a bulb is all leaves, so it's pretty much dead. I've decided, however, to leave it in & let the hungry muncher finish his/her feast. I'm a bit bummed, though. I keep having silly thoughts like "Bulbs are full of parenchyma (somewhat undifferentiated plant storage & bulk structural cells, almost like plant "stem cells"). A culture in the right medium, & I'm back in business." Clearly, it's not worth the hassle for one of the most affordable aquatic plants. Besides, I personally don't know the techniques. I once knew someone who did, & I bet it's getting more mainstream... Recently, I gave away my aloe. Perhaps I'll see if what's left of my crinium is as good as its reputation for skin treatment..."
