I received an African violet plant as a gift and the flowers have opened up, but how do I know when I need to change to a bigger pot (or do I need to)? Thank you!

African Violets have a small root system and do not need a large pot.
You may not need to repot for quite some time and when your plant starts to outgrow it's current pot choose a pot that is only 1 size larger.
They will not do well in a pot that is too large.
Here is a link about growing and care conditions.
