Maricultured corals are wild colonies that are collected then grown in marked off ocean beds (lagoons) under natural sun light for a time period... similar to the way a lot of Live Rock is made, then once they get to a certain size the rock base is snapped off and sent to retailers.

I have another Rose Millepora that looks to be grown in a similar fashion, and actually still had zip ties coming out of the large base disc it was on.
