planting seedlings in pack

I bought a pack of cucumber seedlings, with three seedlings in each 'cell'. Should the three seedlings be planted as a unit and allowed to grow to maturity?

No! Leave the healthiest and cut the others off. One plant per cell. The reason 3 seeds are planted is so that you get at least 1 that germinates.
