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