two sprouts from one marijuana seed

Ask yourself a few questions to decide if it’s worth the time and energy to grow the seed.

One drawback of clones is they need to be taken during the vegetative stage of a plant—flower is too late—so if you have a small setup with only one light, it can be hard to keep clones alive while flowering other plants, because the two need different amounts of light.

Some varieties of cannabis can produce male parts alongside female flowers on the same plant, especially if exposed to environmental stressors. These plants are known as hermaphrodites, and sometimes they can self-pollinate to create seeds.

Was the seed found in good weed?

In some cases, even if a seed isn’t completely mature, there’s still a chance it could be viable. But often these are extremely weak, take long to develop, and express other unfavorable characteristics. Growers usually discard weak plants to free up space.

Because only female cannabis plants produce buds and you want them to focus all their energy on producing buds and not seeds, it’s important to identify and get rid of male weed plants so they don’t pollinate females. If females are pollinated, it will give you buds filled with seeds, making your weed harsh and unpleasant.

But sometimes you get lucky and find a mature seed in some really nice herb. Strains like the legendary Chemdog wouldn’t be possible without adventurous smokers planting and proliferating the seeds they found in a bag of kind bud.

There are a few indicators that will give you a sense of whether the seed is worth germinating.

Same. I've had a seedlings but never went further. I planted a bunch of stuff this spring so I can get keep in practice for that one day.

I can't fucking wait until I can grow legally. This shit makes me jealous.

You should at least start a few seeds in a paper towel or a solo cup. It's neat.

Yep, I have seen this before and it's kinda rare. They are basically just like siamese twins. Some strains can produce this effect more regularly than others. In some outdoor variety's I have noticed that this trait is more prevalent than in many other strains. The phenotype that produces this effect is not usually the dominate one and many breeders would end that line with that seedling. If you have the time and space grow it out, You never know what may bloom. Although you may need to employ some training of some type scrog or lst work well to open up enough room for two plants in one space. Kinda nice though helps keep your plant count down. But don't look for twice the yield not going to happen. Sorry Bro. Peace
