    I bought to VFT's about three weeks ago and put them in what seems like a 5 inch pot. As you can guess, it looks a little bare so I was thinking of getting a six inch pot and putting the two I bought plus three more in this six inch pot.

    Now I guess the plants are fairly mature as the traps are both medium sized and large so my question is - will I be harming my two traps by removing them from the 5 inch pots so soon after repotting and is 5 VFT's fine in a 6 inch pot? How much space should I leave between each plant?

    vft do need alittle bit of space but i think that a six inch pot for that many plants should be fine but transplanting them so fast could be a problem i dont know its more of a judgement call on how healthy you think your plants are.

    Plants typically don't like to be repotted (there are exceptions). If they have plenty of room I would probably let them grow through this season and repot next spring.

    Why don't you just add more plants to the 5 inch pot? That way you can avoid stressing out the ones that are already planted.
