here is the url for the florida grower of aquarium size mangroves, a couple
of people emailed me for.
http://www.floridaplants.com/Mangroves/Default.htm They are fully licensed
by the state of Florida, and have permits to ship to most states in the
USA, and can ship anywhere in the world if you pay for the inspection
here is a quote from their site:
The Red Mangrove utilizes an internal salt pump to exclude salt ions. This
is the means by which the
plant survives the saline environment. The "pump" is a cellular process
whereby the element
magnesium (Mg) is taken into the plant's cells, forcing out sodium (Na)
ions. Therefore, growing Red
Mangrove in a closed system such as an aquarium requires close monitoring
of the magnesium
balance as the plants will remove not only the nitrogen wastes in the
water, but magnesium as well.
When magnesium is depleted in a tank, the plants will turn yellow or
exhibit other signs of salt
stress, including shrivelling.
