I was browsing for plants and saw on the banner of a shop this image, there is a long thin tendril of but I cannot identify it for the life of me. Anyone recognise it?

I should say in my searching I found the photographer was Aldian Prakoso and he has several more images. There's a whole album of this tank

Anubias can but very rare. @Ricrhys posted a link about it in the anubias flower thread I think. Or he explained it one of the two.

So bulb plants wont really thicken out as such, the bulbs wont multiply, just more shoots out of one bulb? I get root and rhizome plants will thicken as roots grow.

Yep, a crinum. I had one in my previous 240L. It was ok but never quite achieved the look I was after. I’m having better “tendril” success with my Cryptocoryne ballansae. I’m going to have to start trimming them soon (8 weeks and virtually at the top of the water)
240L: 6 cherry barbs, 2 honey gourami,
6 Otocinclus, 11 sterbai Cory, 6 standard rummynose, 4 golden rummynose tetra and a visiting nerite snail.

57L: Ghost (Betta)

54L: Quarantine tank. 8 Congo tetra (by post, 17/11/2020).

Parameters: gH2, kH1, pH7.6 (tap).
Fish fiend since October 2017.

From memory plants that grow purely underwater seed underwater are few and far between, they produce seeds that sink and the current disperses them, most other plants we tend to grow produce seeds above the waterline, they float and are dispersed that way, other aquatic plants have evolved other methods such as runners or rhizome growth, please note this isn’t a science post and my brain is old.
