How do I know when to repot it? It’s grown maybe 5 to 6 n...

I would look for signs of roots poking out the top and/or bottom. Snake plants do like to be a little cozy in their pot, so if the roots aren’t poking out, it’d leave it for awhile.
Although I do repot with new soil (and a pot with drainage) a week or so after getting a new plant. So if you haven’t done that yet, it’s not a bad idea. Also I think refreshing the soil once a year is a good plan to keep nutrients available for Winston.
Totally agree with Sami @samily) 😁 snakes do like to be quite packed in! So unless she's showing roots from the drainage holes, I'd be inclined to leave her for now too πŸ’š
The only reason to transplant that beauty right now would be drainage . It’s really important to have that ! They like being tight and normally the only reason to transplant would be to give it more nutrients . But I’d definitely recommend planting in a airy soil with some sand or perlite so it can breathe . Snakes have a bulbous sort of roots and retain water easily .
