Being in Michigan myself, I would wait till the weather warms up a bit.

They appear to be a little leggy, and will require a lot of protection from the sun when you move them outside. In my experience, they'll lose all their foliage and have to regenerate from the crown.

In the meantime, is there any way to get them a little more light? Setting them outside in the sun during the day would be a good start.

I would wait until they were a little bigger and the weather warmer temps at night. Even then you may want to give them a little shade during the hot part of the day until they are rooted. (think cardboard attached to a stick or box w the sides cut out) They will dry out SUPER fast since they have hardly no root. I recommend planting them (when they are ready) outside all together in the same area, some place close to the house so you can check them a couple times a day and water them easily. After they get larger (think another year) then you can move them around to more permanent spots where you want them.
