Ricordea advice

So I have a green Florida ricordea for about 2-3 weeks and not one sign of any splitting and spreading is there any methods to help push it along that doesn't irritate them??? Thanks and he's healthy full color standard lighting no signs of being sick or anything so any help would be good

If you've only had it that long it's probably still adjusting. Once it's happy it will grow and split.

It all depends on your tank. Everyone's is different. For example, mushrooms are some of my slowest growing corals.

Xenia should do fine under any lighting. That's a torch. What lights do you have? In my experience they require a bit more than softies
