Question: How much larger should I go when I repot the plant?
Answer: Most times you’ll want to go to the next larger pot size. They move in 1-inch increments for small pots and 2-inch steps for larger pots. Over-potting a plant into a container that is considerably larger than necessary can really be harmful. The plant won’t be able to take up all the water that the soil will hold. It’s far better to make gradual moves.
