I have 20 adenium seedlings, each with four to six pairs of leaves.

Right now each is a couple inches tall. It is somewhat difficult to tell the difference between some of them because they are pretty similar.



For now I can manage all of them fine. But if each one were an adult I would probably have no room.

I'm curious how those of you who grow lots of plants from seed to decide which ones to keep?

Do you go by the widest caudex even if that plant is much shorter than the others? Or by general vigor as a seedling even if that one has a thinner base?

Right now I think I eventually want an adult plant with a wider base without much regard to the flowers, but when they are only a few months old, how do you tell which seedlings will catch up and which ones won't?
