Fragging / polyp question

    So I picked up a frag rack that had some seduction palys growing on it (thanks again Neil!) and decided to use it as my first attempt at fragging.

    As of today all of the polyps opened up nicely except one (left of photo) - it’s stayed kind of squished? Did I make a mistake with this one or should it open up with time?

    I think in time it will open, may have cut part of it and just not happy.

    Looks pretty good to me. Some take longer than others. Depends on how connected they are. Be cautious with LSoH cause they seem prone to melting after fragging. Definitely wear glasses too. I totally got splashed in my face with zoas juice last time I fragged.

    Thanks for the heads up! Yeah after watching some videos warning about palytoxins I definitely had gloves and eye protection on. Not worth getting ridiculously sick over an obsessive hobby haha!

    I like to put a mask or respirator on too, because as you are cutting they can spray the toxin into the air which can make you very sick if you breath it in. Can never be to careful with these guys
