The offspring of Lobophytum crassum are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Lobophytum crassum, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Lobophytum crassum, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
Very special thanks for the first photo of Lobophytum crassum to Prof. Dr. Yehuda Benayahu, Israel.
