    Let them grow for a while at the very least.

    Nepenthes x ventrata is probably the most vigorous/bomb-proof nep in existence. Let it grow as many growth points as it wants.

    If the plant was a weak/difficult plant like N. aristolochioides, multiple growths on a small plant can "drain the plant's energy" making it weaker and more suceptible to pests/weather fluctuations etc. This sort of "energy draining" phenomenon is common in VFT's and pinguiculas which can literally flower themselves to death.

    Multiple growths on a small plant is likely an artifact of hormone use in tissue culture and in stronger plants (like your ventrata) it is actually beneficial to the plant, making it bushier.
