I have two Drosophyllum seedlings growing well in a 7 inch clay pot- should I remove one? I know that removal of all but one seedlings was Slack's recommendation, but I've read since that they can grow together. Any suggestions, anyone?

Cheers,

Hello Greg!
I had a few seeds this year in one pot. They germinated very quick, and without any problems. The distance between a few seeds was less than a half centimeter. So I donĀ“t think that you have to remove one.
Best regards Christian

I wouldn't remove them because there's really no need. A single plant in a 7" pot won't get too large (relatively speaking) and if there are two in there, they might be smaller than they otherwise would be if single. But that's the only real issue I see, if you consider it an issue.
