A quick one today. Holiday weekend here in The States, and taking a rare easy day!
So, I've been playing with some mangroves in blackwater...Really, because I thought it would be an interesting change of pace from trying to sprout them in brackish or saltwater, as I've personally done for years.
And yeah, as suspected, I'm getting propagules to sprout in blackwater.
This isn't surprising, because they ARE found in blackwater habitats in the wild, particularly in parts of Southeast Asia.
However, it got me thinking about the potential to create blackwater tanks with mangroves, and how easy it would be to "slip into the aesthetic" that we're already pretty familiar with. And I'm kind of wondering how we might incorporate more mangroves not our blackwater systems!
Think about that...
Back with something more thorough tomorrow!
