    Mangrove tree group buy.

    I am going to be ordering some mangrove trees for myself and would like to know if anyone else would like to join in. As of right now they will sit somewhere between $1- $1.25 a piece. Each trwe will be 12-18" 5all. If anyone is interested I will find out the specifics for everyone. 1-?? Per person. Pick up will be at my house after they ship in.

    Mangroves are filter feeders (phosphate and nitrate) and are the reason that the everglades are thriving. No matter what you read on the internet, no one knows the exact number of trees that you will need to benefit from each plant per saltwater system. We know that they work and rhey look cool. Lol

    what we do know is that they are very easy to take care of. You need to spray down the leaves with a little bit of rodi water to make sure that there is no salt creep on them. 1-2 x's a week will be plenty. Any typical fuge light is plenty of enough. The root system can go in a sand bed or in open water.

    A lot of people get a small piece of foam, punch a small whole in it, and shove the tree into the whole, thus leaving the root in the water and the leaves above.

    Thats make the cut off for ordering on the 16th. This will make pick up on friday the 20th and sat the 21st.


    Cash will be due at pick up

    Thats 113 so far. We have enough for 1.25 a piece. I dont think he thought we would get this many, so im going to hit him up for more products or more of a discount.

    Sounds like the Everglades will be overrun by mangrove hunters to fill the order. Maybe they'll kill off some of the pythons.
    Don't look here for a comment.

    I have read that you need to rinse the roots in freahwater from time to time. I guess for 1.25 it is cheap to try it out.
