Rain Lily Seedlings, What About Crowding?

How crowded, and how long, can I safely keep rain lily seedlings in a gallon 
pot.  They came up heavily, and are like a lawn of mondo grass now, at 1 year 
old and some at 1 1/2 years.  

Will they be safe till spring, or will they start to edge each other out.  
There must be 100 seedlings in each of several gallon cans (Z. drummondii, Z. 
citrina, Z. chlorosolen, Z. tubispathus and a few others).  

Should I divide to save them, or will they tolerate each other and just grow 
slowly.  In spring I'll have more time, energy, places, etc., to plant them.  
But, I don't want to lose substantial numbers.
