Captive breeding / propagation

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