I have 5 Orange Ricordia on one rock doing very well. How large do they get before they split naturally?

It depends on the Ricordea. Are they Yuma's or Florida. Florida, in my experience, start getting more mouths and split very quickly. My yuma's don't split at all like the Florida's, but I will find babies here and there every once in a while that take forever to grow (forever to me is six months lol).

Hi justthewife. Mine are Florida. Several have multiple mouths and all appear to be 2" diameter now.

Sometimes they stay like that for a while before they decide to split. Others split right away.

The tank is starting to blossom overall now. Lot of things are multiplying and I have these plus striped green mushrooms that I'd love to really start to go.

Floridian stay smaller and get multiple mouths, yumas (atleast mine) pinch off pieces of their foot to have babies, my mother yumma is about 7 inches across, its huge, it also puts out more babies then my rics...

My big orange yuma is as big as my hand, it pops off babies all the time from its foot
