Lol Kenya tree is one of the fastest spreading corals in the hobby. Once it gets big enough it will drop branches which spread and grow into new trees and continue the process until your tank is overrun and you hate yourself for buying Kenya tree lol.
When I worked in a lfs
I actually find a nudi branch that fed exclusively on Kenya tree corals. Quite an interesting animal and IMO
quite handy for overrun tanks. But that's the only time I've ever seen one. But for beginners it is a hardy easy to keep coral. Just warning about how much of a pain it can become if you do move into nicer corals.
