    Propigating Marimo Balls?
    just wondering, if you break a marimo ball in two, will both halves from a new ball?

    Yes, it will. From what I've read about them they grow really slowly (about 5mm a year) so it would take a long time for them to reform a ball.

    if you cut it in 1/2 then you must make it back into a ball the messed up part is every 3 days you have to turn it so the bottom side gets some light or it will grow out flat
