It is a real beauty Jack. Unfortunately mine died after blooming twice.
So far, leave it in the media. That's what Fred Clarke recommends I think. Then repot once the new growth begins if repotting is needed.
The new growth is high enough that there is a gap between its bottom and the media. Fred does suggest doing the repot just before the new roots emerge (to avoid damaging them). I didn't repot last year but will this year. I'll let you know how it goes.

Really cool flower, Jack and nice color!
Nice flower ... I agree that sphagnum moss is best to grow them well. Gave me 3 large flowers.
Regarding catasetums.. (in my experience)
I dont have any success in media of sphagnum, they usually die on me. I dont know why but maybe its my environment.
But i took a chance of placing them in SH with pumice and leca. Strangely....they survived! And even gave me several babies.
