The offspring of Pleuractis granulosa are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Pleuractis granulosa , please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Pleuractis granulosa , try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
