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

Here is a link that might be useful: Thread in Tropical Fruits forum discussing mango
