You need to cut it half through the mouth. If feeling real ambitious, you can cut into into 4 peices. But you will need to get it off that rock. o and its a mushroom.

or you could wait and in no time you'll have 30 of them. i have heard of someone who put a mushroom in a blender and poured the slurry in their tank and they had them popping up all over the place not long after. not that i condone this....i'm partial to waiting. those are fast growers.

I just saw that YouTube video. The guy literally put 3 or 4 mushrooms in a blender and hit blend. Then poured the resulting pieces into his tank and apparently they took hold.

Mushrooms usually spread on their own just fine without being blendered, If you only have one wait until it reproduces on its own first before you decided to start cutting on it. That way you will still have a full mushroom,
