Merwilla plumbea

My limited experience with Merwilla plumbea suggests that they should be
pretty dry in winter. I would give them another year as clumps in bigger
pots, otherwise you will have a lot of extra pots to look after.

In general bulbs are much easier to handle when they are bigger. Separating
out too soon is fiddly and likely to damage the seedlings before they are
robust enough to cope. Your seedlings look well enough grown that if you
wished to separate them and space them around a large pot (or plant
individually) they should be fine. This  would normally optimise the growth
for the next year. I only state good general practice as I have limited
experience with Merwilla.

 I have never grown bulbs from seed before and read that it would best to
just transplant the whole lot together without separating them. Then I have
read to separate into individual pots. What to do? And should I let them go
dry for the winter or keep them growing?
