Separate curry leaf seedlings of duplicate embryos

Curryleaf seeds are often double embryos. In our experience, about 60% of them were double embryos. This year we sowed 5 seeds and 3 of them are compound embryos.

Since the roots of the double-embryo plants will become entangled if they are left as they are, they can be divided when they have two or three true leaves and grown as separate seedlings. 

Prepare a new pot or pots for growing the seedlings so that they can be transplanted immediately. Water the embryo seedlings to make it easier to remove them from the pots. Be careful not to pull out the seedlings themselves. Carefully remove the seedlings from the pot with the soil and gently remove the soil. To prevent the roots from drying out, immediately transfer the seedlings to a prepared pot and cover them with soil.
