    Hey guys

    My shroom colony is doing some very inetresting things. I'd liike to know if this is good or bad.

    First funny thing:
    One shroom would lift his mantle up while the other shroom brushes his mantle up and down the others exposed stem...
    I noticed a new small little shrooms appear between the two

    Second:
    The are getting very big and seem to be competing for light. Seems they are taking turn in over lapping each other. Or they push each others mantles so that it looks like two mountaisn with a deep valey. Are they pushing each other away?

    O.K so only two funnies I can remeber now. I'll o watch them again tonight.. :)

    Hi LappiesReef - yes, I think that it is possible that they could perhaps reproduce sexually. BUT, afaik they MOSTLY reproduce by budding off - creating exact clones of themselves....

    If mushies become "unhappy" where they are located, they will detach, and try and find another location where they can continue to propagate themselves...
