Captive breeding / propagation

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

Diese Montipora ist sehr einfach in der Haltung, waechst bei mir wie Unkraut, selbst schattig. Vernesselt andere Korallen nicht, hat aber die Tendenz diese zu ueberwuchern.
