Siamese Twins?
« on: January 13, 2008, 05:47:49 »
Is it possible to have two seedlings sprout from one seed?

These are seedlings of a very nice yellow Clivia, of which the seed of the parent plant came with me from South Africa. As I am very frugal with my seeds, I made sure, before planting, that each sees was a single seed, and there was no chance of two seeds being planted together. Do twins like these occur often, or is it rare. Only 8 of the original 10 seeds shown, germinated.

I have personally had several multiple-embryo seeds from South Africa this past year (June). I'm not sure what varieties off my head, but none were yellows.

I am curious what the pollen parent is on your seeds: are these miniata? If so, the pigmented bases suggest they will not bloom yellow. There is more on this topic elsewhere on this forum, easily found using the search feature.

The bases look pretty dark could turn out pastels?!?!

Hi Pierre, I've also had a couple of these the past two seaons. It is not unusual.

I am sorry if I disappoint you too, but also noticed the pigmented stems even before reading Paul M. and Humus' comments.

Are you sure this plant was pollinated by a yellow?...it could not have been selfed. If the first scenario applies, the mother plant or pollen parent are most likely to be group 1 and group 2 yellows or visa versa.

But yes, hope you get some nice pastels!
Clivia greetings

Twins are not very common I believe. I had 3 out of 270 seeds...

Just a small ? about 'twins'.  Has anyone grown both out to flowering and compared with parents?  In most genera with multiembryonic seeds, the extras are nucellar and not genetic and thus genetically clones of the mother plant.
