2 peas one seed #183181

Asked May 19, 2014, 2:43 PM EDT

Hi, my husband and I planted a pea, and we have two indentical pea plants. Note° we planted one seed and we have two almost identical plants. I wanted to know how common this is? All of my internet research lead me back to marijuana clones... which is not even close. Any information would be awesome, or is this way more common than I think?

Stranger things have happened in the world of plants, but the more likely explanation is you planted two seeds that were stuck together.  This is fairly common--seeds sticking together and the gardener planting what they think is one seed in a cell of a seed tray or in the garden and "twin" plants resulting. Hard to imagine two English pea seeds sticking together, so just enjoy your novelty and the wonder of plants!
