First Replating on my dendrobium cross

I sowed these seeds on the 16/4/2013.. This is my experiment to see the outcome of this cross, to see which is more dominant.
My other seeds are quite slow at germinating, so I gave this one a go because I knew it would germinate quick... I've been flasking for about 3 years and have been teaching myself as I go along...I've had lots of mold growing instead of orchids, and only at the beginning of this year they've seemed to take. I went from sowing in a glove box to sowing on a table and I've found a higher success rate for me to sow on the table in a spare bedroom. Even replating in normal household air has been a success with only having like one flask with contamination. From a 7.5 cm flask I replated the seedlings into 5x 15cm flasks, and gave them a lot of space to grow and to make next replating much easier without having to try untangle roots. Please feel free to comment and ask questions.
