Red (Blood) Clementine
« on: April 08, 2017, 04:42:03 PM »
Last January I planted the Red (Blood) Clementine seeds that I got from Laaz. Some of those seeds produced just one seedling, but many of the seeds produced multiple (nucellar) seedlings. Last week I was stunned to see three of the now 3" tall 80 day old seedlings have just sent up more   nucellar seedlings.  One of the original seedlings  produced one additional tree, and two of the original seedlings produced an additional two trees.

Very good
I planted 7 of the same seeds from Laaz on Jan 1 and I now have 9 plants, 2 of them gave me 2 plants and they separated and repotted with no problem.
It would be interesting to see if I get any more starts from the seedlings like you are getting.

Millet, I had the same happen with the seeds I got from Laaz also.  Also, when I separated some of the small plants I also found several plants developing within the seed case still attached.

Cory, evidently the same seed case development must have been going on , but as I separated the seedlings I must not have noticed it.  Amazingly 80 days is a long time in developing a seedling before it grew above the soil line.  Whatever, glad to see them.
