and then you super glue them to your new object? Are mushrooms the only ones you cant super glue?
Fragging zoos is easy. I use my pocket knife to break off a small piece of rock under the base of the specimen. It makes glueing easy and does not harm the base of the specimen. Using this method also requires no recovery time because the specimen was not cut.
Two things to pay attention to here are becarful with the superglue if you get it anywhere but on the bottom of the mat it will burn the zoo. Use gel type glue.
Second zoo and palys carry a toxin called palytoxin it can cause pain, numbness, nausea and it can and does effect the nurvous system. Dont cut yourself while working with these ie- becarful.
