Hey everyone, I've got two seedlings that popped up with the seed shell's stuck to the leaves. I carefully removed one (in the picture) but the leaves are stuck together pretty good... Should I leave it alone or try to open the leaves? It doesn't look like it will open on it's own but this is my first grow so I'm not sure what I should do.

Thanks for the help!

If you look carefully, you will see the remains of a membrane on the end of the leaves (that little brown bit ;)) If you are careful, you can remove it...I have this issue too, cant leave them alone until I see the cotyledons...you can add a drop of water beforehand to soften it but I find they come off of you gently scrape it with a fingernail
