no have I hit the holy grail of mango seed?

if you look closely at it I personally see 3 possible roots one is well defined one is miniature and other I believe is just damage but I maybe wrong if it is polyembri' what do I do!

I have several mango plants (from seed many die from bugs eating the seed) :

I have always soaked seed for 1 to 2 days in warm water avg temp 19C then I use toothpick and a cup of water till I see the leaf stark start to grow then I plant it in free draining soil and good water retention so I don't have ti water more than once a week)

Polyembryonic mango seed occurs with some frequency, I think typically all but the strongest seedling are removed when enough growth (not root) has occurred to make clear which has more vigor. Several discussions in the tropical fruit forum
