My question is about replating orchids from their mother flask into bigger ones with different media. When i was doing my research online, some people took some protocorms with a spatula, and just spread them onto the replate medium directly. The other most common method I saw was waiting till the protocorms developed into very small seedlings and then usuing tweezers/tongs to individually plant them into the media manually. I was wondering which method is better. Currently I'm leaning towards the second one because it allows you to know exactly how many plants you put in each replate flask, and to place them evenly within the flask so they are evenly distributed.

Any thoughts would be appreciated, Thanks!
