Getting Mushrooms to release

I've got a bunch of red mushrooms on a rock, and I'm wondering how I can get these guys to let go of the rock. There are like 9 to 11 on this one alone.

I'm pretty sure you have to frag them. Which means you actually have to cut them off from the base with a raiser blade. You then could tie them to a smaller rock and sell them. I'm actually goin through the same situation I hope I'm right.

Yeah that's why I wanted to get them off the rock. So I could place them on the bed instead. LoL

Ohhhhh thought you wanted to get rid of them shame on me
was gonna say sell me the rock
I just spent like $25. on bunch of shrooms to cover my sand bed today got bout 30 1 to 3 inch shrooms assorted colors and sizes , it's going to look sweet when I finish it , I'll post up a pict when done

and you can do same


get a pair of plastic tweezers from Walgreen's think there like a buck , grab hold of shroom get a good grip lift up as you cut the base using a sharp razor blade or scaple , trying not to rip them
it would be easier if you can remove rock placing it in a new clean plastic dish pan
(there a buck at dollar store)
full of some tank water on a small table for a work station ( that's basically how I've been fraging a bunch of new zoa's)
that way you don't have to reach into tank taking a bath lol
