Rhodactis natural propagation


Recommended Posts

Just asking a simple question, have this piece in tank for 2. 5 years already, sure its getting bigger but why isn't it splitting itself? 

Fews weeks ago bought a green rhodactis which was smaller than this but decided to pinch itself and split within weeks... Is it just the mushroom itself or what

Can I do something else to let him split naturally? Besides cutting

From my experience, stress/change in environment causes them to split, just like BTAs.

And also, I've accidentally shredded one of my rhodactis one day when I tried to cut the rock, splitted it into 3 pieces. I've also torn some of them off frag-racks they got stuck to. Pretty much all of them grew back, quite hard to kill haha.

Normally I place another frag plug/rock under the mushroom and hoping it will grow on it. Sometimes it eventually splits, I'm guessing this is probably due to the uneven surfaces.

I have a frag that is hanging on the edge with another rock at the bottom, tried to remove the glued rock only to realize it had already attach it foot to the bottom rock, hope it leaves a foot and make more bbs haha

Update, he decided to split!!! Finally 

All it takes is some twist and turn to annoy him once in a while so he moves and splits on his own
