This is my first Ping, and it arrived bare root back in early October. I believe that this is still carnivorous leaves, please correct me if I am incorrect. The question is when should I re-pot this plant? Does it have enough room in the current pot? How much space does it need?

Thanks all.

I don't have as much experience with pings as many others here, but I think I can field this question.
In general, pings don't have much of a root system. They don't really become root bound, but they can outgrow their pots when they are dividing out over the edges. While your ping looks plenty happy, I think you have quite a bit before it runs out of real estate in that pot!

The people that I got it from had it labeled as "Pinguicula emarginata x ‘Libelulita’ "

sorry about the picture, that flower is fading and another will be out in a day or two. Substrate is peat and perlite. Purchased from California carnivores.
