The first leaves on the stem that grew from the mango pip look like a bird with tall wings and a long curved beak.
The stem and leaves grew quickly over less than a week. So did a second stem.
I read that it was better to nip out the second stem. So I did.
Now the mango seedling looks like any other seedling tree. That is, off centre in the pot due to the size of the pip (now covered).
I have since read that it may be better to grow a grafted tree. There is a mango tree in a garden that I pass on the way to the local shops. I’ll ask the owner whether I can have a cutting from their tree to have a go at grafting when my little seedling tree is established enough.
