    I found a sieboldianum seed that had two roots emerging so I am assuming a twin embryo. Unfortunately I didn't have a camera available so I didn't get a picture before I planted it.

    Any idea how common this is?

    Thanks

    I think you will enjoy this thread Keith.

    Twins?

    IMO it does not happen too often and to get a twin from sowing is quite rare.

    And you will have to let us all know if you do.
