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

They have well developed paliform lobes forming a crown around the columella. For more Infos blick to the Link to AIMS Website.
