cut them in quarters , put pieces (or whole mushrooms) in a shallow tub with some rubble. Cover it with some kinda mesh to keep the shrooms from blowing out. they will attach. I have seen people use thread to tie them to a rock.

i know a guy that put a mushroom in a blender and then poured the goo back in his tank, and in a short time, had mushrooms all over the place.

Hang on breeder and place some rock rubble in it. Drop the frags in there. Of course, they'll attach to the rock that don't want them to, but they will attach.

Or, if want to place them on a particular rock, put a wooden toothpick through the frag and glue the toothpick to the rock. That has worked for me for all softies.

They grow so fast I would not frag them. They`ll grow fast on there own. I started with one mushroom and have grown hundreds. Have sold many to the LFs.

True 'dat Mike. Most spread very quickly on their own.
