This is a very easy and cool technique to making multiple mushrooms. Sure you could wait around for them to split into two, or you can grab some scissors and cut it into pieces. This was my first time doing this and I split a Yuma in two.

When cutting the mushroom MAKE SURE that you get part of the mouth on each piece, if you do not they will die. Sadly I didn't do it photo by photo, but I do have some to share.

This was the test mushroom, a yuma. These pictures were within 15 minutes of splitting it in half.







Four days later...

I got some kitchen scissors, a cutting board used for fragging, and some paper towel, and placed my leds above it.

After it released its water



Cut into two



I didn't want to risk cutting it into four, and possibly loosing all, so I only split one of the halves again, and made quarters.

Yeah I know! The half is almost a perfect whole! The quarter pieces have a way to go though! I'll take pictures in a few days.
