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