Seed casing came off during paper towel germination

So I had a couple of autoflower seeds germinating under a damp paper towel. I was just about to move one of them to soil to its final pot to start the rest of the grow process. However, when I went to pick it up I noticed that what had sprouted from the seed had completely shed from the seed casing. I know this happens naturally as it grows into a seedling but will this happening before it’s even reached the soils effect how this plant grows? I’ve already moved it to its pot I’m just hoping it won’t become stunted…

Welcome to the forum.

You’ll have to see how it goes.

In general, plant your seedling in soil when the tap root is about 1".

welcome to the forum, we will find out soon, hopefully its all good

I was going for the 1” mark, it was a bit hard to tell since it was spiraling a bit but if I had to guess I think it was actually a little shorter than that.

Ive had seeds do that before and most turn out fine, but sometimes one wont make it, but then again some dont make it anyways so i say go for it
