seedling with one cotyledon

by Tarzanus » Wed Feb 01, 2017 10:43 pm

Tonight, I've been checking on my Dionaea sedlings and noticed one, that is growing quite a bit differently. It only has one cotyledon. It looks like it is merged - something like siamese twins.

I have a bunch of seedlings going also, one has a heart shaped trap, almost like a triangle shape. Wish I had a good camera to take a picture, iPhone doesn't do very well with close ups.

How much sunlight do you give to your seedlings? I have seedlings but I'm unsure as to how much to give them

I'm keeping them under 50W full spectrum LED light.
I think you can give them as much light as you can get. Well, like all plants, they need some time do adjust.

I have one that did that too lol..I was like "wth?"
When all the trees have been cut down,
all the animals are hunted,
all the waters are polluted,
and all the air is unsafe to breathe,
only then will you discover you cannot eat money

I know, right! It actually looks like completely different plant.

It grows a bit slower than all the other seedlings, but the first trap is finally forming. I'll see if it gets different than all the others. In the pot with red flytraps, there is one that has conjoined cotyledon, but not the whole, on top of it, it grows apart and seems normal. Strange as well as this one. :)

Here's the first trap. Seem it will have short curved teeth. Straight in the middle of the trap and on both sides pointed outwards. Nice little beast. :D
