Though I've never done it, I'm pretty sure you need to split it so both pieces have part of a mouth. I don't have the guts to cut anything. I made my husband cut my Kenya trees out when I wasn't home. Lol.

Well it's actually got two mouths, so I'm just going to cut Inbetween those. I just don't want it to be susceptible to disease and such

Ahhh I see, yours is different than mine, but still, they grow like crazy. And as long as you have the proper lighting and good water quality you can throw them in a blender and they'll still reproduce! Ahaha

I came home one day and found one of my power head fell right on top of my mushroom and poor thing was shredded into pieces until the ph jammed and stopped working. Only a small piece the size of quarter left of the mushroom but luckily with a remaining mouth. It is still alive and starting to grow again.

Yeah one of my green mushrooms split and the second half moved to a different spot. I really just don't think they care. Lol.
