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