Crocosmia seedlings one or many to a pot

I have germinated crocosmia from own seed.

Is it best to put them singly into pots to grow on, or would you put several into a pot?   

I know I could do either but which is correct for long term?

    I would let them grow on in that tray this year. Feed it (liquid feed like Miracle grow or phostrogen) and let bulbs build up. When they die down in late autumn, then pot up your bulbs, spaced a couple of inches apart, in gritty compost.  I put five bulbs in a six inch square pot. One in each corner, one in the middle, when they have reached flowering size, you drop the entire potful where you want it to flower.
