Wow, those are quite red. I personally wouldn't repot. I usually wait until they are overcrowding the pot to the point of the pitchers having trouble emerging. That het x minor should be good for another year IMO.

Wow, those are beautiful! I want to get a heliamphora. They're hard to find for a good price. Plus I don't have a clue how to grow them! But yours look excellent and the coloring is magnificent!

i was thinking about starting some from seed. idk but to have live moss in there, it would have to be pretty wet anyway. I like these compact Heliamphora more than the tall Sarracenia. though certainly i love both. just the Heliamphora looks like pottery or artwork. :)

My sarracenia will do well outside in my zone b area, but keeping it away from neighboring animals will be a challenge! I'm going to put my cobra lillies outside in the spring as well.
Heliamphora are just so alluring and gorgeous!

Your Heli's look happy and healthy! I usually repot when 1 of 2 things happens, either the pitchers are becoming deformed from being smashed up against the side of the pot OR when I see roots emerging from the drainage holes.
As for your pulchella, Heliamphora's, after flowering, usually will divide (that's why you see the new growth points) The mature section that produced the flower spike will usually take a rest after flowering and will resume growth eventually. Feeding those nicely colored pitchers will help it grow faster.
