they only get to 10- 12" max in the wild,they eventually break down into smaller marimo.his eventually will too. you can treat them with salt water for the brown spots. if the one is falling apart, you may just want to divide it. lots of youtube footage for this. let the other people do the trial and error, right? if you want your marimo to grow faster you can put it in it's own bowl of club soda(not safe for fish). this increases it's corbon exchange. guess you have a chance for a bunch of baby marimo. the brown spot is probably from freezing also. you will be able to tell, as it will not recover. but give the salt bath a try.
