Last fall I harvested some of my own flower stalks and got some from a friend and about half of them grew plants. For now they look happy but I'm not sure how long their roots are. Right now they are in 2-3 inches of moss and is there a certain time or way to know when I should repot them?

Those larger ones should be big enough to repot if you feel the need, though I wouldn't worry too much about it. A too-shallow pot won't hurt them. Personally, I'd wait until they were big enough that I felt confident handling them to repot.

Got some other flytraps that are having problems. Is it possible that these aren't healthy because of mites?
