Very cool and rare
The red mangrove is a true plant that is suitable for both fresh and salt. While it does function as a refugium plant, it is a slow grower and therefore only sequesters nutrients at a modest pace. However, on account of its attractive appearance, it is commonly used as an ornamental. See below for more information.
Do Not Fully Submerge.
