I'm using a 9-cell square, and in each cell I put exactly one beets seed. I'm sure it was one because the beets seeds aren't small and I could clearly see I was putting one. 4 of the 9 I planted germinated regularly, and about 5 of them germinated into 2 or even 3 seedlings. I'm trying to understand if I can take out the soil and seperate them into 2 3 seedlings and plant them seperately, or are these seedlings actually connected to the same root and that's how beets grow? Also, if the are not connected to the same root, should I just snip off one of the two, or can I carefully seperate them? Thank you
By the way, how did it happen?
