Black Mangrove Riparium Kit
This is an offer for a black mangrove (Avicennia germinans
) riparium kit to include a sprouting mangrove propagule with riparium planter and substrate.
Black mangrove is a great plant! You can grow it as a riparium plant in your freshwater, brackisch or marine reef tank. As a true estuary plant it is an especially nice addition to brackish setups. Here is a picture of my 65-gallon brackish riparium setup with black mangrove and other mangrove plant species.
Red mangrove is widely-available as propagules, but black mangrove can be a more desirable plant. Pruning is difficult for red mangrove and can often result in death of the plant, but black mangrove can tolerate light pruning.
Here are two different combinations that I can make available shipped with USPS Priority postage:
- ONE black mangrove propagule with ONE riparium planter & ONE portion planter gravel
- TWO black mangrove propagules with TWO riparium planters & TWO portions planter gravel
I recommend planting two propagules in each planter.
This picture show propagules beginning to sprout in a planter.
Just let me know if you have any questions.
