    Nepenthes seedling repotting?

    About two weeks ago, I upgraded my lowland tank to larger T5H0 lights
    As the King tiger was beginning to demand a larger terrarium and better light.
    The Attenboroughii seedlings have taken a liking to the environment too, and they
    Are already growing larger. However, this poses a question because they live in a single pot.

    Should I repot these into different pots? If not when?
    They are starting to reach a considerable size, I dont want
    One crowding out the other. They are just a little over a quarter size now.

    The pot is 2inx2in, about 4-5 inches deep.

    The reason to separate them now is that their roots will become intertwined making it difficult to separate the fragile roots from each plant in the future.

    I would suggest moving them to proper highland conditions ASAP.

    It has been documented of attens growing in intermediate/lowland conditions, but that may have been a fluke plant....
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    IMO, they are tough little ***** and 90% of my atten plants are grown at intermediate or constant 22c.

    Nearly jumped out of my skin when I hear everybody talking about highland

    I bought these nearly year and a half ago from a man in the springs, he said that they do fine in intermediate temps..
    So thats where I put them.

    From the general consensus (that I got) of others here who grow attenb. also said that theirs
    are also in intermediate temps.. Should I change them now? Mine have never had a problem before with it,
    and the LL chamber now is slightly cooler than the old one. A pitcher is inflating right now, almost like
    they didnt even notice a change.
