I agree with Alberto.  Separating Amaryllidaceae seedlings too soon -- and 
two years seems much to soon, to me -- can stunt their growth and set them 
back by many years.  Don't disturb their roots until you absolutely have to.

Repotting just as new growth starts, at the end of dormancy, has been the 
best approach in my experience, but I don't grow Brunsvigia or Amaryllis.
