Pilsner starter

Good morning,
I’m brewing a czech pils tonight. I did a 2 liter starter with wyeast 2278, let it go 2 days, chilled it, decanted it and did another 2 liter starter yesterday 6:00 PM adding the remaining slurry. I assume I would have gotten better yeast production if I had split the slurry into two additional 2 liter starters but since I only have one stir plate I opted for just the one. My question is are there any negative issues to not doubling the starter volume? Any problem with putting too many yeast cells into too small a volume starter?
thanks
steve
oops, forgot to add critical point, 10 gallon batch, splitting the 2nd starter between the two carboys.
thanks

You just don’t get as much yeast growth.

Check out yeastcalc.com for a yeast starter calculator for multiple steps.
