Set some seeds off yesterday (6) , but out of the 10 pack, 1 was broken into 3 or 4 pieces.
I thought wth - & stuck them on the cotton wool anyway.
Amazingly, I now have 9 shoots!!!
So, wait a minute............broken seeds will still grow.
So I could (in theory) get 20 + healthy shoots from 10 seeds.
I'll give them another 12hrs or so & post a pic so u can see what I mean.

how they getting on?...
er - well they sprouted taproots, but haven't broken through the soil yet.
(i put the complete shoots in rockwool for hydro growing & the broken 1's I potted in compost)
Be interesting to see how they turn out - seem ok so far

Hmmm pepper mill, didn't think of that. I would have gone for turkish expresso.

Clones can be produced from even a single cell, because every cell of the plant possesses the genetic information necessary to regenerate a complete plant.
i wonder if your seed split in such a way as to get some of the embryonic growing tip in each part...hope they come through but with little or no cotyledons to feed off....
nah pgtips any day....goes so well with a smoke...

u put 6 full seeds in + 3-4 broken pieces of 1 seed.
and u have 9 sprouts coming up.
therefore that would mean that 3 of the 3-4 broken pieces have sprouted?
do i have this correct?

If they turn out to be runts I'll scrap them, but I don't see why they should be - they seem healthy as the others
Thinking about it, if u leave a spud in the dark, u can grow a complete plant from 1 eye, so it makes sense really.
Just surprised me that's all
keeping them separate so i don't get them mixed up
