orchid protocorns

hi,
i am soooooo excited about this, i found a orchid protocorn with keiki and roots in one of my orchid pots. so far i had only two seed that i scatter around, one is my first catasetum hybrid while the other is my phalenopsis pulcherrima seed. but from the leave of the keiki, i think it resembles more of catasetum. what do you all think?
the three orange line are pointing towards the three new growths. i transferred it to a clay pot with loosely packed sphag moss

this is symbiotic germination, lucky seeds that got infected by the correct mycorrhizal fungal gets to germinate. lower germination rate compare to flasking but i got ONE. (out of the million seeds sowed)

gracias everyone.

One is better than none for sure
I agree with fish mom. It doesn't look like phal wrong growth pattern also with the keiki or side growths for a Phal seedling.
Congrats!!!

thanks, if this is a catasetum, that would very much make my day. though it was just purely luck that i manage to get one, but it is my very first hybrid.

Lower germination rate for sure, but you won't lose any through deflasking

using maths to calculate........
1 divided by 1 000 000 = 0
ditto on the deflasking part ...........final pic after i transplant it

let's hope so, sometimes when we have only i chance of doing something, the pressure is always there. i am too very curious on how an Ctsm integerrimum and a Ctsm chong keng yong would look like, both are totally of different morphology.

Bummer! Might have been better to leave it in the original pot instead of put it in sphagnum...?

yeap, but next time i won't be aiming at symbiotic germination. it would be asymniotic germination
