Nice shroom man. Digging all the gems your throwing in. St tomas is the only species i haven't been able to cut and frag bit that could have been for a million reasons at the time. Can you get a close up of it? I have the JF minecraft looks very similar to the one you have. Still one of my top 3 shrooms of all!

Thanks! Perhaps ours is a JF Minecraft and not a St. Thomas??

Ahh no looked real similar in pic under other lighting. Minecraft is also a St Thomas. Different vesicle structure and color for sure. Your is nice.

So you are more knowledgeable than I, would you say ours is a St. Thomas or something else?

Time to frag a Jaw Breaker:

First cut the disc on the bandsaw so I can snap it under the foot:

Nice, not as clean as I had hoped, but should be ok (I got three frags) one was not attached so I put it in the cup with the Frankenstein

This was kinda a hack job, I can do better. I was hoping to split it in half (without cutting the mouth!!)

Mark, yours might be Electric Tie-Dye St. Thomas. Sure looks like it, look it up
Might be. I got reefers on the "other" coral forum telling me it is not a St. Thomas but a hairy Rhodactis??

Are you dipping in iodine after cutting? (and for how long if you are?) I've been thinking about cutting my og for a while now.

I dont use iodine. In fact when I have heard of mushrooms melting, they have used iodine. Is there a benefit of using it? I use a clean cutting board and a fresh (or cleaned with hot water) scalpel. And I try to minimize time out of water and any other stresses.
Cheers! Mark

I actually have no idea what the benefit is. Last time i researched cutting mushrooms I read about it/saw it in videos. I assumed it was to prevent bacterial infections. Anyway, thanks for sharing. I was curious to what your process was since it seems successful.
