Here is a short album I made while i was fragging my Ricordea about 3 weeks ago. The last picture is of them recovered and was taken about two and a half weeks later. The process for fragging mushrooms is the exact same.

I know someone who put a mushroom in a blender and then poured the slurry in his tank. A few weeks later, he had mushrooms everywhere. They are pretty resilient.

I personally dont see the point in fragging them. They grow so fast anyway.

Mike ,..for as much as I love the mushrooms,...for some reason, I find it very difficult to raise the Florida ricordeas ,...I have no idea why ,..all the other varieties grow very well,....especially the hairy ones!!!! I just bought another rock with some nice orange ones on it,...got my fingers crossed that one of these days they'll take off.

Living in Vancouver BC Florida Ric's have to travel a LONG way to get here. If I could frag them and sell them for half of what the stores do I think my fellow reefers would appreciate that. My regular mushrooms drop babies everywhere but the rics don't seem to reproduce that quickly in my tank.
