Hi Dking and welcome to NGA!

Could you post a picture of your plant? I'm not familiar with the name Crownarium and can't find anything that comes close.

Welcome!

The only reference I can even find to this plant is from a nursery called Sanggar Kemuning Nursery in Indonesia. I suspect the name they are using is not the proper name. Maybe someone here will recognize it.

I wonder if that name could be a mis-spelling of "coronarium" ? That's a term that isn't a plant but is a description meaning "crown" or "crowned". It's applied to several cultivars of different plants including Ginger (Hedychium coronarium), a snapdragon and a calendula as well as others.

@Dking47 if you could please read the tag on the plant and copy very carefully exactly what it says, or post a picture of the plant, that would help us to answer your questions.

Elaine that's what I was thinking - The reference to air plant or succulent makes me think that Dking might be referring to Staghorn Fern - Platycerium.

The photo I posted is from an internet search and, I believe, the plant Dking is asking about. The caption with this photo was something like 'I had to split my Crownarium'.

It does look like staghorn leaves but this, apparently, is the whole plant.
