Nothing wrong with that! Most plants should be heading into dormancy within the month. It's the best time to divide plants up while they're asleep, and as long as the plant is healthy, repotting any time of year should be no problem. You can go right ahead and set up your collection in time for winter, then enjoy them in the spring.
Welcome to the Forum and the hobby, and thanks for introducing yourself! You can definitely get started now, but I would focus on hardier varieties (purpurea purpurea, rubra jonesii, oreophila, Carolina flavas, and their hybrids) and make sure they are in the ground with mulch cover or have an attached garage to overwinter in. Exposed pots will not survive winter in your climate, and a greenhouse may make sense in the medium-term. This is the perfect place to learn and ask questions, so don't hesitate!
stu: Hi Mike: I’m pleased to report that the S. rubra wherryi Chatom Giant you sent has arrived in great shape as did the bonus plant from NC. Both are now back under southern skies and are feeling warm, humid, and at home again. Thanks!

sanguinearocks101: What are good plants to make hybrids with S. luecophylla with? Im looking for dark colors.

adaetz100: Sarracenia purpurea tends to add a lot of red/purple to its offspring, but there are some lovely dark red flava x leucophylla crosses too. Look up 'Royal Ruby' if you're not familiar with it already--it's a natural flava x leuco hybrid
