Root, no leaves

Postby Jennio » Sat Nov 18, 2017 8:20 am

My seed cracked in half and started showing a root about a month ago, but has not pushed up any leaves. It looks like there's a tiny greenish bud down near the bottom of the split. Is this normal? Do I need to do anything to encourage leaf growth? The single root is about 2 inches long now. It's a Hass, if that matters.

its normal that the root comes out first and then after the top part start to grow. But sometimes (3-7%) only the root grows without ever developing a top part. You can look at our time-lapse video where you can see the growing cycle.
