Hi all :)

I'm growing a avocado from seedling (with the help of youtube) and im very new to this. However, its sprouting 4 shoots? I'm kinda puzzled. Is this common? I've tried searching for more info online but was unable to find anything on it. Can't find anything on youtube either.

I've attached some pictures for your reference. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!
Greeny

From Andre Ernst, Allesbeste nursery in South Africa
"The avocado seed is mono-embryonic. Multiple spouting from a single avocado seed is quite common, usually the result of damage to the apical bud. These multiple sprouts may falsely suggest the existence of polyembryonic seedlings. If this would have existed in avocados it would have long ago been explored for clonal rootstock propagation."
