    is there anything really different between keeping normal shrooms vs ric's

    the vibe i get is that they seem to be either more finiky or are they just scarce?

    they can be more sensitive, but saying that the ric's I had (both florida's and yuma's) were bullet proof :)

    I know they do like light though

    Not sure, he has just kept growing, he is about 50mm across, but still one unit. Haven't seen any division yet.
