I have just germinated garbanzo beans and planted the seedlings. However, the stem is going into the ground... I thought the sprouted part of a seed is its stem, not its roots. Is this normal for chickpeas to do?
interesting.... ill be following this thread
It's normal. The seed embryo is made up of two parts; the radicle, or first root, and the plumule, or first shoot. The root will appear first and direct itself to soil or water. Must, in order to support/nourish the shoot.
