Riparium Plant Availability 6 December 2012
Riparium Plant Availability - 6 December 2012
I am going to try to update with a new plant availability thread every couple of weeks.
I offer below a list of selections that I have in stock. Note that I still have plenty of Avicennia
I hope to have Acrostichum
leather fern and Bacopa monnieri
in again next week.
Most of these plant are rooted starts
. They are ready to plant in your riparium planters, but will need some time to establish and grow in. So be patient with them!
