How large of a container should I plant my pink polka dot plant into in order for it to grow full size?

Hi & welcome! Is your plant outside for summer temporarily, outside for summer to be brought inside for winter, or inside full-time?

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

Your question is analogous to asking what size shoes should I put my son in for him to grow full sized? Larger pots do NOT make plants grow larger. Optimizing light is the key determinant of plant growth. Only after a plant becomes quite potbound should it be moved to a new pot ONE SIZE larger. It is a gradual process. Focus on keeping your plant healthy, not growing it ever larger. Hypoestes is not generally a large plant to begin with.
