    mushroom reproduction

    this may sound stupid...but i dont know the answer.

    i have red mushrooms that are reproducting like mad. I also have one single blue and one single blue/green. i know if you cut the stem the stem will regrow and the top will keep growing. however....do you need more then one mushroom of that perticular species to have consistant growth like i am having with the reds? im just afraid to cut the single blue and blue/green in fear i will kill them both.

    You can cut them without fear of them not making it. I've yet to frag a mushroom and not have all pieces come back fine.

    Heh, I've heard you can practically frag them in a blender Seriously though, I'd cut a pie shaped piece out and just stick it to something.
