Sunset Sherbet has sprouted 2 tap roots

From a fellow grower: My first Sunset Sherbet seedling sprouted 2 tap roots, and they both came up! I saw on your forum that people call these twins and it looks like most people separate them. I don’t see how I could do that without damaging them, they are so close together (see the photo and zoom in). I was thinking I would just leave them alone and see what they do. I didn’t see anyone mention that option…is that a bad idea? I typically use 1 gallon then transplant to 5 gallon cloth pots but I could give this plant a bigger pot if that might help

Try and spectate them if you can, but even in the same pot they’ll be stealing one another’s nutrients.

Thanks! Is it better to separate them immediately or wait until they are a little stronger?

It’s best to separate them when you feel comfortable. The more roots they make, the more likely they’ll become intertwined.
