Indian Almond Tree (Terminalia catappa)


Hey guys,

Has anyone seen any of this tree in south Florida?? Some guy posted he saw them but I can't find his location. Would love to find some for my shrimp tank.

Hey sorry for slow reply. It's down in West Palm not sure how far that is from you. They have a fruit tree nursery that sells them. Will be trying to convince the wife to let me plant one in the back XD.

I used to live in West Palm, worked in a saltwater store there. I'm here in Orlando and will be doing some hunting for one today. Will let you guys know how it goes.

I live in Winter Park and I have 2 indian almond trees in my backyard, strategically planted early this year when I decided to breed bettas for fun. They are under 4 feet now, but soon will have more leaves than I can ever need. Available for grabs for those in the area. I might donate some to a LFS like Darkwater Aquatics so they can help others with shipping (I personally don't have time or the desire to getting into shipping)

You can use leaves from oak trees as well, just make sure they are not fumigated or systematically immunized with pesticides or heavy metals.

Default online source

I realize you are trying to find a local source but I wanted to mention that I buy the indian almond leaves I use online from alpha pro breeders really cheap. I believe I paid @ $5 for the medium sized leaves and my shrimp love them. His shrimp and the way he ships them are excellent as well. Just an option.

I did find a local source for the tree itself. But the wife has me waiting for us to buy our new house before I go planting things LOL. I did end up buying 100 leafs for $18 so that should hold me off till I plant my own tree.
