    Correct me if I'm wrong, but looks like you cut around the edge?

    Will the removed part grow?

    So if you cut its head off it will grow back, but would the head that was removed continue to grow or die?

    the head that was removed will grow and so will the stalk grow a need head.

    I've got a "pin cushion" but not the normal type, mine doesn't have the little "pollyp" at the end of the "tenticle". just has the "tenticle"

    lIghty - that looks like a lobophytum coral - family of the pincushion, but not a pincushion in true sence of the word...
