size of pot

Hi I have a flowering maple that is growing more all the time. My concern is that it is in a shallow dish along with another plant that is also getting larger. There is a small african violet in the same dish. Do IThankx repot the whole thing in a larger pot? It is in the house by a southwest window and seems to thrive. Thanks

You'll probably have better luck in the long run by separating the two plants and growing them individually. African violets will stay relatively small and compact, while the flowering maple can get quite large and shrubby. So it eventually will need a much larger pot than the African violet. (Although you could grow several African violets around the base of the flowering maple, as a sort of groundcover.)
