I have a Mango plant grown from a seed (I ate the Mango). I now have it in a 8 inch pot, and the plant is about 3 inches high. Do I ever need to change to a bigger pot? When, if so?

Mangoes are easy-care houseplants. They only need repotting when it's clear that the roots are crowded in their current pot. It should be quite a while before yours needs to be move to a bigger pot! Just keep it moderately watered, in a bright spot in your house. It doesn't need full sun to grow well. Feed it occasionally during the active growing season. It prefers winter night temperatures no lower than 60-65F. Enjoy your mango!
