Expert Answer:

Reproduction is by fission and by conjugation. In the former case, first the smaller nucleus, then the larger, become constricted and divide into two by oblique division, and the missing organs in either part are quickly regenerated.

Frequent multiplication by fission diminishes the vitality of the organism and is succeeded by conjugation, when two individuals exchange part of the substance of their nuclear apparatus.
