Unhappy Mangrove Issue: Black Leaf Tips

Hi all,

I recently added a mangrove propagule to my new brackish tank, and the 2 leaf tips are turning black. Any ideas what might be the problem?

Much appreciated!

I have the same thing happening to my mango plant. It is most likely a bacterial rot in the roots.

Quarantine it. I take my mango out and rinse/ scrub it with my fingers. Helps a little. I am also adding plant food to the water while it is quarantined, hopefully it will bounce back and fight the thing that ails it.

Best of luck!

Thanks! Is the bacterial rot something that is visible on the roots?
