Captive breeding / propagation

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