Strange arabicum seedling

trip_kcMarch 8, 2013

Hi everybody
Inspired by beauty of adeniums I started collecting adeniums last year.
To have thrill of growing from zero I imported seeds from Mr Ko of Taiwan in Dec.As it was cold then I differed sowing.Sown first batch fortnight ago and overwhelmed to see germintation above 90 percent.
I observed one strange seedling among arabicums which had three initial leaves instead of normal two.What does it signify?
Suggestion on care and fertilization are welcome

I don't know what it means biologically, Trip. But I think you should wish on it!

I would think that it is just some sort of mutation. Whether it will produce three true leaves be interesting.

trip_kc - I was going to make the same comment that fakechuchi did; consider it a 4 leaf clover and wish on it. Perhaps you should take it along to purchase a lottery ticket!

I have a bunch with 3 cotyledons. They grew just fine. I was baffled myself when I first saw them

Hi Rick,
Seedling with three intial leaves is under my constant observation.
It had grown first set of true leaves.To my extreme surprise these are again three wheseas other seflings lead to two true leaves.
Now I am extremely eager to know what shall I expect from this.

Hi everyone. Just taken a look at my seedlings ...and....I too have a three leaved one that I hadn't noticed! It's one of the obesum hybrids seeds that Rick sent me. So I'll be keeping an even closer eye on this one from now on. We will all have to compare notes!

Trip_kc and Gill,
Have to post photo's and keep us posted to see what the outcome is as they grow.
Makes growing them even more interesting.

Hi Rick, yes I will do :) The seedling only has the triple cotyledon leaves at the moment so I'll wait and see what it does next before I add a pic.

Here's an updated pic of my triple-leaved-obesum-hybrid-seedlings progress so far, and it's doing OK. The pic shortens the errrr, tremendous height of said seedling as it's taken from slightly overhead to show the leaves better. It was either planted on 26th February or 5th March as I sowed my seeds in 2 separate batches. Anyway it is very similar in age to yours Teyo...if not in height, lol!

Gill,

Your seedling looks so nice and plump. I can't wait to see it by end of summer. We all should have some very nice seedlings to gawk at over next winters long months. ha ha.

Thanks for sharing the photo.
