Captive breeding / propagation

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

Colour: Usually brown.

Habitat: Reef slopes and lagoons.

Abundance: Usually uncommon.
