Okay in the Same Pot?

Earlier in the summer I ordered a serissa cutting. I received two cuttings in the same nursery container, and they were both quite small, so I thought they might be too fragile to separate and I repotted them both together. But lately they've been growing pretty vigorously, and I'm wondering if they need to be separated so one doesn't crowd the other out. What do you guys think?

The second picture is from a couple weeks ago, but it's easier to see the two stems. Last image is from a few days after I got them and had just put them in the new pot. I honestly didn't expect as much growth. I wasn't even sure both of them would survive.

Personally I'd leave them both in the same pot as this will lead to a bushier plant but it's entirely up to you... I've no experience with this plant so I don't know the pruning regime.

I too would leave them together. They are happy and gorgeous. The roots will be stressed by going through a separation right now. I know certain parts of the world are putting a growing season behind them, meaning it is the wrong time of year to allow ample time for healing before growth slows or stops. I would reevaluate in Spring. Just my opinion, as I have never grown this plant.

A lot depends on what you plan to do with the plants. If you are going to leave it as a potted plant it will be fine with both trunks if you repot into a larger pot next year. They also make excellent bonsai if that’s where your headed.
