No it won't die. Wait for a few more days, when the seed lifts up you may have to help the  cotelydons seperate from the shoot.

When tip-cutting is done just above the beginning node of a growth flush, as was done on all these branches pictured, too many buds are activated, in a scrunched-up space.

Just to clarify, are you saying that when tip-cutting I should cut midway between the nodes rather than right above the nodes?

Thank you Har!

I have had the following picked last Friday (all after the rains) and not one was worthy of consumption:

Coconut Cream
Fruit Punch
Marlys
Sweet Tart
Taralay
Pickering

The only one that was of decent quality was a ZINC.

Hello, I have had this durian seedling for 18 days now in my garage. It started to brown from the bottom and I was afraid it was going to die, so I scratched off a tiny piece of the new bark and stopped after one scratch. Will i kill it if I scratch a tiny bit of it off?

Thanks, Matt

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Why young Chempadak plants die

Besides soil balance another thought comes to mind.  There could be an advantage in having some soil microorganism present in the growing medium.  A common palm called 'cocos plumosa' in the trade can have difficult germination, then it was determined that sterile soil was the culprit...
Someone mentioned Cheena seedlings always growing well.  I am grafting both jak and champedek on to champajak seedlings.  The seeds are larger than jak seeds which I like for quicker more robust development and are even more compatible for champedek which isn't easy to establish from seed.
