When to take germ dome off

I gave 5 seedlings germinating in peat plugs inside a dome. 3 of the seedlings have sprouted and are reaching high, almost touching the germ dome. The other two are still cooking. My question is, at what point should I remove them from the germ dome covering? I don’t want to stunt my big guys, but my little guys still need some more time. Suggestions?

I take mine off as soon as I see green.

Even if you have some that haven’t popped yet?

Put mini domes on the unsprouted ones as soon as they breach the medium I harden them as fast as I can at dli 10-12 . Your babies have stretched like crazy and will need to be buried extra deep now , just leave 2-3 inches and they’ll be fine

I use clear solo cups and quart nursery bags.
