    Default Damaged pot on mail order phalaenopsis

    Hi, I received a phalaenopsis with 2 spikes through mail order with a damaged pot, the lady had wrapped the pot with heavy duty clear tape that I could not get off. So, I had to cut off the pot from a near blooming plant. Should I totally repot it or should I just place it in a bigger pot undisturbed and put sphagnum moss around it? Thanks for your help
