Paramecium reproduces in 2 ways... Thats sexually and asexually... Asexually by binary fission that is division of parent cell into 2 daughter cells... And sexually by conjugation where in two parameciums come in contact with each other ventrally!

Paramecium reproduces both sexually and asexually. Asexual reproduction takes place under normal circumstances, where as the sexual reproduction occurs only when the conditions are unfavorable for the paramecium to reproduce normally/asexually. In asexual reproduction, the macro nucleus of paramecium gets longer in size and gets divided to form two nuclei. Then paramecium simply divides transversely to produce two organisms. The sexual reproduction includes the fusion of micro nuclei or gametes of two paramecia. The two paramecia come closer and get attached to each other. Meiosis takes place in both to form the gametes. Four micro nuclei are produced in both the paramecia, out of which, just one survives and other 3 are destroyed. The one which is left undergoes mitosis and forms two micro nuclei in both the paramecia. Then the paramecia exchange those two micro nuclei and get separated. Now those two nuclei fuse to form one micro nucleus. The new macro nucleus is also generated in the organisms. Now the process of sexual reproduction is complete, and both the paramecia divide transversely by asexual reproduction method.

~Asexual
~nuclear material replicates itself
~Nuclear material splits itself
~Cell starts to pull apart
~as a result two smaller cells appear

Paramecium are capable of both sexual and asexual reproduction.  The most common method is asexual, where the single paramecium divides in two lengthwise.  Sexual reproduction is usually only in times of stress, and the two paramecium join and exchange genetic material with meiosis and then mitosis.

Paramecium has two means of reproduction, simple division and conjugation.
A. Division. In favourable conditions the cell divides in two by a process called binary fission. This forms two new cells, each of which rapidly grows any new structures required and increases in size. This whole process make take place two or three times a day if conditions were right.
B. Conjugation. This is a more complicated method. It involves two cells coming together to exchange nuclear material. The two cells then separate and continue to reproduce by simple division. It is similar in some ways to sexual reproduction in more complex animals.

Its the division of the single cell organism..it splits in to two.....each caring identical genetic information.

Either asexual or sexual but the most common is asexual. (the only reason I know this is because thats what someone else put up there) :)
