Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

Similar Species: Pavona danai, which has less development of fronds and larger, deeper corallites which tend to align vertically, not parallel to margins. Pavona cactus has smaller, shallower corallites
