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

Habitat: Shallow protected reef and lagoon environments.
Abundance: The dominant coral in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.
Similar species: Porites cylindrica, Porites harrisoni
