I could no longer watch the young lesliei v. mariae squash each other so I've put 6 of them in a separate container. The others should have more space now. And also, I'm curious to see the difference in their development, having read that transplanting young seedlings stimulates them to grow faster i.e. get new leaves sooner.
They are now almost 7 months old, going up to 1cm in length. Please note that the roots are at least 6cm long by now. In case you are planning to sow you should keep this in mind. The pots should indeed be 7-8 cm deep even for such tiny seedlings, or you'll need to repot them very soon.
The pic below is of the "main" container before they got more space :)
