How long does it take for the plant to get "pot bound".  The problem is, 
about a month ago, I re-potted the plants into bigger pots, thinking they 
were crowded in the little 4 inch pots (I saw roots trying to poke 
through the drainage holes at the bottom).  

Did I do the wrong thing?!  Now that the roots have room to grow again 
(I moved the plants to 8 inch pots), will it delay the babies' arrival?!!
