Nerine seedlings

I sowed some of those Nerine seeds from a recent seed distribution. 
They have germinated nicely and are coming along.  I normally start all 
my seeds in single serving Yogurt cups from the various manufacturers 
therof.  I drill several 3/16" holes in their (the cups) bottoms, and 
have had good success for many years.  The Nerine seedlings have sent 
some roots through the holes in the bottom of the cups - much sooner 
than any other seedlings I've started.  So, leave them be, and some 
roots will be snaking around in the saucer which the pots sit in, and 
will ineveitable be lost when I pot these seedlings on to larger 
containers.  Or,..pot them up now, with root disturbance to very young 
seedlings, but with subsequent long roots not being lost?

What do you all think?
