Captive breeding / propagation The offspring of Platygyra pini are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Platygyra pini, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Platygyra pini, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
Color: Usually grey- or yellow-brown with green or cream valley floors.
Similar Species: Platygyra ryukyuensis, which has smaller valleys with thinner walls. See also P. crosslandi.
