View Full Version : Large "Aussie" ricordia colony outgrowing my tank. Need identification.

This ricordia colony was sold to me as Australian. It is growing like mad and starting to overtake some neighbors. I'm asking for an ID if there is one and suggestions on managing it. Thanks. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160424/6e5d982e8536a4c8f9d2e27f61b165eb.jpg

Well first you could help it but sending me some... But all jokes aside. I am by no means an expert, but those look like ricordia yuma because of the bubbles on the mouth.

Nice problem to have, That is a nice colony.

Is the rock they are on removable? If so I would chisle off the rock around the attachment points to keep the foot intact and sell off what you can, be warned though Yuma's are some of the touchiest shrooms out there. Good luck.

Managing it would be trying to chip a few off the rock and selling them, should go pretty fast there's always demand for those.

Need to put something on its borders that it doesn't like, Torch maybe. This way if it gets touched it will pull back. The other choice is to cut it down sell it off (ship me some) and just groom it.
