Melocactus spp. 05/27/2022

I sowed some seeds on 05/27/2022 using the bag method. This picture is of the Melocactus spp. taken a week ago. It was about 100 seeds so there is a good amount of seeds still not germinated. I've read to not give up on seeds so what are some suggestions to do? Is it okay to replant the little seedlings and place the pot with seeds into the bag again? Also, there's that little individual that looks a little white.. thoughts?

Thanks in advance! I'm a total newbie, please forgive me if I am doing something wrong :lol:

The seeds may pop up every so often. I would not transplant the seedlings, but you can try picking out the ungerminated seeds with tweezers, let them dry for a while, then try again. The white seedling is weak and may end up dying.
