Captive breeding / propagation

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