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 black mangrove.

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!

  • Ruellia 'Chi Chi' Bluebell - grows to about 14", lavender flowers - $3.50
