    I always repot about a month after they finish blooming. New roots and growths usually start about this time. I'm guessing you have yours inside at this time of year in your climate?

    Ack..it's been more than a month. I do have mine inside...I've never actually been brave enough (or had a spot) to put it outside even during the appropriate season.

    I'm noticing that it's just not looking like it's as happy (maybe not a lot of new growth, kind of blah) after this last blooming. I've had it for a year and a half and it's bloomed three times, but I have not repotted...so maybe it's time.
