    This plant continues to grow new growths. I have not repotted it and have relocated it to a greenhouse with bright light. The air roots are excessive. I just hope it will bloom and will tackle the repotting dilemma after the hopeful bloom. Agree, there isn't much information to be found about questions. That is why it is so great to have this forum with everyone here.

    Hi monihulum. Hope your catt is doing OK. Regarding the roots, they can be trimmed to a manageable size without doing any harm to the plant which also can avoid the plant being divided.
    Good luck.

    I start to repot my catts in July in my environment. August they start to grow roots and new leads and are most likely to flower in the next season. I hold off on the ones with green sheaths.
    For the Northern hemisphere, change those times by six months and add a climatic tolerance. Since I am in the tropics, things start to grow earlier, so adjust for your climate.
