you can uproot it and maybe use some of the old medium. your gonna have to buy peat moss and some perlite(optional)

Hi ometinus,

If both your plants are doing well and are healthy, then I would not recommend re-potting your two plants into one pot. Early Spring, March and April, is the best time to re-pot.

If you decide that you must do it then I would recommend re-potting your plants using a standard carnivorous plant soil mix of 1 part peat moss and 1 part perlite. Peat moss adds acidity and retains moisture, while perlite provides drainage. Some growers like to mix in silica sand for drainage which is fine also. I would highly recommend trying different soil mixes to see what works best in your growing area. Just make sure that peat moss is at least 50% of the growing medium.

I hope this helps and please ask, should you have any more questions.
