lemon dwarf trees from seed

I planted some lemon seeds a month ago in Jiffy Easy pellets. I hope you all know what they are - small soil packs. I have kept them indoors in a light windowsill. now they have grown very nicely, they are around 5-7 cm tall and have nice healthy looking leaves. the thing is their roots have started to come out of the bottom of the soil pellet. I want to make bonsai out of these trees. should I cut off the roots as they come out? Should I just let it be? Or should I transplant them quickly into a pot. The roots which have come out seem to be drying out.

Roots in the air will die. Your lemon seeds will produce a standard or full sized tree 15 to 20 feet tall if grown in the ground normally. If you want to make it a Bonsai subject you should post this on the Bonsai forum. Al
