Captive breeding / propagation

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