Ginkgo Biloba seeds have a funny way of germinating...

Most of you you probably knew this already but for me it was a whole new experience...

While other seeds just start with a tap root that pushes the seed upwards and in the end the first leaves push the seed shell off, Ginkgo Biloba has another way of doing this.
First it seems to produce a tap root but this root splits in 2 and from the split tap root another piece of growth emerges going straight up. I guess that will be the actual tree. The seeds just stay on the ground.

Any advice on what to do next? Besides just letting it grow? :)

I learn something new every day :)

Just let it grow and enjoy your tree. They're pretty fascinating!
