I'll probably re-introduce the male in a few months, when my female has more weight on her; she's still below my standards for a breeding female. This would also be my first go around at breeding this species, but I suspect that there is no need for brumation as they are a tropical species which does not experience drastic seasonal temperature changes. If proximity alone is not enough to inspire breeding, then a simulation of the wet season by heightening the humidity in the environment for a period of a month or two may incite a response.
As long as you aren't observing any cannibalistic or aggressive behavior, and all of the animals are eating regularly and being fed individually, I see no reason why you couldn't keep them together. I think I will continue to keep mine separate - except for breeding purposes - as it is easier to monitor food intake in such circumstances, but do whatever works best for you and the animals.
