Inga vera produces multiple seedlings
« on: July 21, 2022, 03:58:19 PM »
Hello. I have been growing Inga vera from seed, and it appears multiple seedlings have originated from a single seed. Are these independent plants, or simply offshoots from below ground? If the former, should/can they be seperated, and if the latter, should they be trimmed? I have not found any mention of this online.

Hmm, okay. Would you advise cutting them back?

Inga seeds often polyembryonic and can be separated easily. Much easier to do it in a wet paper towel, you will see exactly which section goes to each root

Now that is an interesting concept--they are like twins?
I will do this!
