Growing Trays to pots indoors? Do you transfer?

Curious to know if most people start their seedling germination in a growing tray, and then transfer them? Or do you simply keep 1 plant per cell and grow them in the tray until they are ready to go outside?

I sometimes use coffee cups to start plants in and they always seem to get bigger than those in the cell trays.

Curious if people transfer their seedlings or just leave them crowded to grow until they go outside?

I usually put in 2-3 seeds per cell and once there are few sets of true leaves, I transfer them out to 3 or 4 inch pots. It just depends on the size I have available. I move them outside and right into my mini greenhouse.

Thanks Luis!
I'm going to do the same. I have a few plastic trays without the pod holes, so I'll use coffee cups I think when I'm ready to transfer them.
