Default When to divide?

Good evening all. I have 2 Helen's Hybrid double sprout (not really sure if 2 seeds or 2 sprouts from 1 seed) seedlings which I will want to divide at some point.

They are about 6 weeks old now and I am just curious how long should I wait to do so. They will have a nice warm, bright, humid growing situation indoors throughout the winter before they go outside next year.

Thank you very much for the help





Thought I'd throw this one in there because, wow, I can't believe how fast bananas can grow in 6 short weeks. On July 12 these 2 plants were just barely sprouted (back row)

Most folks say to separate pups when the smaller one is about 2ft tall (average height of knee?). That's the point that I have separated offshoots during this season.
