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?

I repotted some of the vft's from the flower stalks and they didn't stress out from repotting and growing great right now. I'm also planning on repotting some of the other ones once they get bigger.

These two vft's didn't recover but got worse. They're still alive so any tips on how to save them would be greatly appreciated.

That looks something like mineral burn. What substrate (type and brand) and water do you use?
