Time for a repot?

I've had Leonard here since Jan 2023, and I want to say he's been in this pot for about a year, give or take? He grown a TON, and is easily 2-2.5x as tall as he was when I got him. In the past few weeks I've noticed he's dropped a couple of lower leaves despite keeping to my usual watering routine and I'm wondering if it may be because he's starting to dry out faster due to how much he's grown? Should I move him into a bigger pot this spring? There aren't any visible roots, but this style of pot is such that I suspect I wouldn't really see them until he was so rootbound he was about to break the pot πŸ˜‚

Wow he’s like twice as tall… I would repot. But just remember that pots can be too big and hold in water for too long
I think Lemon Surprise is kind of an interesting plant type name
@RelentlessZebra Hi there! Spring is a great time to repot and due to your beautiful plant’s growth, I’ll bet it’s time. If you take it out of it’s pot and find that it’s not rootbound, you could always just refresh a bit of the soil and pop it back in the same pot, though, like you, I’m betting that it is and that could speak to it drying out quickly and losing lower leaves. Don’t want to break that pot either! πŸ˜‚
Going up an inch or two is probably what it needs. Btw- REALLY GORGEOUS plant!!! 🀩πŸͺ΄
@RelentlessZebra totally agree with @SunnyPlants . Enjoy your plant care journey!πŸ™πŸ»πŸ˜
