I’ve never seen it done in my short time in this hobby but I was wondering if a ricordia garden was possible? I love the way they work and the one I already have is loving life and I was considering doing this. Any thoughts?

Well after I made this post I went to the lfs and picked up my second ricordia and it looked like it was getting ready to split when it was in the store so maybe I’ll have one I can give to my girlfriend. I also picked another sps for 10$ and my girlfriend got a 2 head golden hammer! Here’s a pic of my other ricordia too:)

It shouldn't be too hard to get a garden going. I have a half dozen ricordia florida that I just set in the same corner and they have all settled next to each other comfortably. The flow is low and they already had a bit of rubble attached, so the weight helped prevent them from just floating away.
