Sometimes that is determined by what you expect, or are looking for.  For 
instance if the pod parent was used for the tendancy to give pure white 
variegation, and the pollen parent was selected because it has round leaves, 
with heavy substance------- you can usually pick seedlings that "carry" those 
charactar traits by the four leaf stage.  The rest you should be willing to 
"weed out".  Even in a flat with all green  seedlings, the form, substance, or 
things like red petioles, will show by the three or four leaf stage.
