How to grow twins plants from one seed cannabis weed

Just found out this morning that cannabis seeds can produce twins!

it’s like an instant topping, 2 main stems from the jump..

they are two different plants with two different roots, it isnt 2 main stems, it’s 1 main stem for both plants lmao

I get headband seeds from drgreenthumb.com every year. and about 10% of them do this every year.

Hmm that’s interesting! Maybe it’s the strain.

These are from Humboldt Seed Organization! Are you normally able to save both seedlings?

is this a first?

I’m hoping I can transplant it and get both plants to grow 🙂

Happens sometimes, it’s only happened to me once.

Are these regs? Curious to know if they both turn out the same sex.

They are feminized 707 Headband so I’m pretty stoked. My 3-pack might’ve just turned into a 4 pack lmao

I wonder if they will be fraternal or identical? Is this bagseed or feminized? I’d be curious to see a follow-up post down the line. Are you planning to try to keep both plants?

*Edit glad ur keeping both! Pls update us!

This mutation is very common. Polyembryonic seeds contain more than one seedling. Once germinated, it will produce two taproots instead of one. If carefully handled, these seedlings can be successfully separated into two plants.

Strangely, one of the two plants will be a normal offspring of both mother and father. The other plant will only be a clone of the mother.

Three-seedling polyembryonic seeds have also been reported.

Despite its interesting biological marker and outcome, there is no real advantage to breeding plants with this trait. No effort has been made thus far to develop a true-breed with these characteristics.

This is feminized 707 Headband from Humboldt Seed Organization! I successfully separated them so hopefully they both grow 🙂

This actually just happened to me too, a seedling hit day 1 and a day later a twin sprouted, I separated them and they are doing great now ❤️❤️

well that’s lucky!

“TWINNS BAZZLE, TWIIIINNSSSS”

This isn’t the first time this has been posted (really cool and rare though OP!!).

Are these guys generally genetically identical or different – identical vs fraternal twins so to speak.

Joking. Congrats on the twosies. Good luck!

Or you planted two seeds.

Here’s some more info:

One seed two sprouts

Help! I am for sure a newbie and somthing crazy already happened. I bought seeds from attitude and they show up with the quickness props to attitude. One of my master kush seeds sprouted two plants. I used the water for 24 hours then paper towel method. also used store bought soil so I’m sure its a MK plant and not something else. Anyway here are some pics any advise on what to do would help alot.

Ok thanks guys, I was also wondering if they both live will they have different needs as they grow like more water or nutes or should I treat them like one plant. I guess time will tell. I’ll post some more pics when they get a little older. I also got some super lemon haze beans but I’m going to practice with the Master Kush first.

Ok so yesterday is when the seed first broke through just could see her a little bit, later that day is when I took the pics I posted. Today she has grown well over an inch. The bad news is only one of them is growing I think maybe the tiny one wont make it. Well I’m going to give her some love and whisper sweet nothings in her cotyledon and hope for the best. Pics are a little blurry.

Is it just one plant, one root system?

if you can seperate them, I would.
just carefully remove dirt and see what’s up, they’re small so they won’t have extensive root systems. It would be better to seperate them, than to have 2 plats competing with each other, for at least 2 and a half months if you flowering from seed. I guess you could put them in like a 7 gallon pot and train one to one side of the pot and the other to the other side.

A lot can happen in 1 day I think she looks way better, still very tiny though. We named her Mini She on account of her being so small and the fact that I used fem’d seeds. I have a plan and I would like some thoughts on this. SCROG them! My thought is if I can manipulate them so they go in different directions maybe I can stop big sis from hogging all the light plus get a much better yield in a somewhat shallow grow cab. I want so grow in soil for the taste do any of you think this is possible?

got your message about my twins .. I could be wrong. But i both plants probably won’t survive. They’ll be fighting over root space and eventually one will win. I COULD BE WRONG THOUGH. With mine the advice i got was to either let them go or clip one of them. I cut one .. i couldn’t see how they would be able to share the same root space without them strangling each other. Mine was of a freebie of LA Woman .. here’s a pic although she’s a week or two older now

mean mate. crank em. may have to feed extra nutes as it gets older as well as having a fairly decent size pot for the mad root system it could potentily grow, gud luck keep us posted.

Not necessarily true. If it grew from one seed it is technically one plant, and both stalks would share the same root system. At least that would make sense, no?

depend of whats underneath. the only way to confirm is to look when the plant will be cut and its gonna be time for harvest u will be able to look at ur root. by the time try to give it love and water

try to get a huge pot i guess. they shouldnt strangle but. as human sometime. they have to cut something to save one or else they will both die.

but for this plant their evolution is way more higher than a human ^^ they are WEED after all this shit can survive thru almost anything except thermonuclear war . even there im sure they would find a way

keeps the sissy away of each others by just bending it with a metal pin in the ground. before the stem harden like iron! zig-zag(word game) it as you can since the stem is weak and easy to play with do what you want its like a tissue rope nothing less nothing more BEND ^^also important

never buy miracle-grow ^^ it hurt ur plant more than anything else. miracle-grow is for sensible plant. i found it hardway. overfeeding is bad dont worry for them they can SURVIVE and i mean it strong as hell

“Twin” Cannabis Seedlings

Twin tap roots can sometimes emerge from one cannabis seed. This is sort of like your seed having twins, because each new root has the potential to form into a separate plant! It’s not incredibly rare to get twins, but it is pretty neat to see it happen in person!

When this seedling sprouted, it had two taproots coming from the same seed

When the leaves appeared, there were two distinct seedlings – you can see another tiny set of leaves behind the main sprout!

In this case, I decided to kill the smaller sprout, but you can also gently and carefully separate the two seedlings and transplant one into a new home.

Examples of “twins” being born

From this grower, “When I got the seed it looked really deformed.”

If you grow two seedlings together in one container, their roots will become entwined and one plant will usually dominate, stunting the other one. But if you give each plant their own home, they can both thrive!

After the seedlings grow out, you have a tough choice: Separate them or pick one to keep!

In this case, the grower decided to save both!

In its new home!

It grew so fast it ended up getting rootbound in just two weeks!

A few days later after being transplanted to a new container, the plant is healthy and growing strong. At this point it’s a little under 3 weeks from separation of its “twin”
