When I buy primula, do I have to plant them in a bigger pot or I can keep them in their original pot? Thank you.

This is really dependent on the container its currently in. Look at the type of pot you have and its current drainage situation. Sometimes pots have a saucer attached to the bottom which catches water. This can usually be taken off to allow the water to freely drain from the plant and keep you from having to continually tip it out, as standing water can lead to issues with root rot. If there is no saucer-like bottom, check that there are adequate drainage holes, or if there are none, in which case you may need to repot the plant into another container that provides better drainage. Also, if the pot seems too small for the plant, repotting may be necessary.
