No. Keep an eye on the bottom of the pot and when you see roots beginning to peek out, it is time to repot. Move it to a new container that is 2 inches larger in circumference than the current container. Be aware that repotting will stress the plant and should only be done when necessary and when you do it, expect it to drop its blooms and possibly a few leaves.
