Ridordea Coral Propagation Method
 
 
 
Difficulty Level -
 
Materials Needed
  • The ricordea corals to be propagated
  • Scissors or comparable cutting tool
  • Live Rock Rubble
  • Small Section of Mesh from a bag of oranges
  • Rubberband
 
 
Here is the ricordea colony that I am going to frag a polyp off of.
 
 
The tools that I use to propagate ricordea polyps include clean, sharp scissors,a piece of the mesh bag that oranges are commonly packaged in, rubberbands, the ricordea polyps to be propagated, and some live rock rubble or shells. Various materials will work in place of the mesh including bridal veil and garden netting found at the hardware store.
 
 
First start by using the scissors to cut the head of the polyp off of the stalk.
 
 
Then place the ricordea polyp onto your piece of rubble.
 
 
Then take a small piece of mesh and wrap it around the rubble a few times to hold the polyp in place. Use the rubberband to secure the mesh to the rubble. Try not to wrap the rubberband so that it is applying too much pressure on the ricordea polyp itself, instead try to wrap the rubberband around either side of the polyp. Place the rubble back into your tank and check the polyp after one week.
