    Sarracenia tolerates root crowding but it is a good idea to repot and/or divide them when the are bursting out of the pots. Sarracenia are not very sensitive to root disturbance although S. rubra growth can be put back a year or so. I've had rhizomes that the roots snapped off during shipment come back to healthy growth after a year.

    Nepenthes are a different matter and a lot depends on the species and size and age of the plant:

    I repot all my neps the minute I can. I'm not scared because nepenthes are easier for me. It's the ceph and pings.

    If you try to be really gentle and use the 'non invasive' method of repotting, you won't really disturb the roots. Gently tap the pot on the bottom so the soil ball comes loose, and have a bigger pot ready with soil in it. make a hole in the soil that's just big enough to accommodate the soil ball, and place it in. The roots will be virtually undisturbed, since you didn't rip them apart and try to fit them in the bigger pot. Just let them grow out of the old soil ball naturally

    I hope you're giving your plants dormancy at some point, if you live in the tropics a good method is to put them in the fridge method.

    I repotted my sarras that way, pressing the pot to loosen the soil, and then pull the srarra pitchers gently and out comes the whole medium. Then I put it in an empty pot and stuff more sphagnum inside.

    I will be giving them dormancy. My D. intermedia 'Great Swamp' are already blackening and producing short non-carnivorous leaves(not sure what they are called). I will provide them with dry dormancy. Fridge dormancy is not so good for me.
