Seedling Care
Q.

Will the sprout (little plant) live if a root is cut during transplant?

I used the baggy method to germinate my seeds. Well the hard part is that when their roots go underneath the tissue making it hard to transplant it. I have like 3 seeds left in my packet. The 2 are still developing roots. The other made leaves and a long root. I tried carrying it with a tweezer and then Its root were cut in the middle. I am worried that it might not thrive because It was wounded. But there is still root from where it was cut.
