Description

Rhizophora mangle is characterized by its spider-like "prop roots" that stand out of the water and is very popular among aquarists.

They happily take root in sand, mud,  gravel, larger rocks, or water with no substrate at all. Just make sure that leaves are above the water, and the root system stays moist.

Red Mangroves can thrive in fresh, brackish, or full seawater. This adaptability is possible because the plant conserves fresh water by excreting salt through its leaves.

This is a bundled order of 3 Red Mangroves

Pro Tips:

  • Keep aquarium water at 72-78°F, with a pH of 8.1-8.4, and dKH of 8-12.
  • Remove fallen leaves before they can decay and raise nutrient levels.
  • Red Mangroves can grow substantial root systems, and become very tall.
    Choose a large aquarium or pot to prevent stress from frequent replanting.
  • Trim the plant's growth tip to prevent excessive height, and avoid aquariums
    with tops or canopies.
  • Mist Mangroves with purified water or wipe excess salt from the leaves
    with water daily.
  • Regularly add trace elements and an iron supplement.
