When a second one come up like that it's damage to the corm or to the developing seedling unless, in rare situations, the seed is twin.  Auctions are an interesting situation.  You never know how prices will run.  EFG prices their individual seedlings at that price, but you don't know how many of them they sell at that price.

Regarding this question about foliage yellowing.  Send me some pictures and I'll take a look at them.  It's really the only way to tell.

Here's another question, Would you say that having two corms in hte pot is a bad thing? You said the seed split or something. Im asking because I say a 6 inch seedling sell for $40 and my 24 inch plant sold for a measly $20.50. How did you say that they cam to have two plants in one pot?
Thanks
Erin

They may just be going dormant.  There's a common misconception that they go dormant for the winter and many of them do however, they really go dormant when the correct time for that particular plant is reached and I've had them stay up for as long as 18 months.  All of mine go dormant this time of the year and come back up about the middle of June.  Look at the petiole for vertical wrinkling.  As the leaf begins to die back it not only begins to yellow but the petiole will start to look like it's drying out.You can gently slip them out of the pot and look at the roots or the corm.  It is correct that they appreciate good water but that doesn't mean sopping wet either.  I find them actually easier to grow if kept just slightly drier.  It's always easier to recover from too little water than it is to recover from too much.

*sigh* Some of the leaves on my brand new titans are starting to turn yellow. They have been in full shade and Ive kept the soil wet. They look like they've been over watered but I thought they liked water. It has been very windy too and these plants were soft greenhouse plants. Could that be the problem? Im very disappointed here, I just dont get it.
