Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Rainfordia opercularis are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Rainfordia opercularis, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Rainfordia opercularis, try breeding yourself.
