I purchased a kiwi plant about a month ago, and now it is starting to grow. Should I plant it into a planter?

If you won't be planting it in the ground, you should gradually increase the size of the container it is in, repotting when it outgrows the container. Choose one that is just an inch or two wider than the one it's currently in. It's best not to plant a small plant in a large container because that would cause the soil to stay wet for too long, potentially damaging the roots.
