Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

(S.G.Gmelin) M.A.Howe, 1905

Not only much more sensitive to water degradation than the similar Caulerpa taxifolia, but also much more beautiful. Extraodinary growth to large populations under good conditions.
