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