    Personally, if the roots look healthy I would leave them alone for now, or at the very most loosen the sphag a bit. But I'm a fairly new grower myself so maybe others would have better advice.

    No, if the roots are good leave it alone . It won't hurt the blooms but it is best to re pot when the plant is starting a ring of new roots . Also to give it a chance to adjust to the new conditions . if the roots were bad i would say to re pot . I Pot all of my Phals. in Spag. easier to see if they need watering or not for me . It is beautiful I would of grabbed it too .. Gin

    Thanks Gin, as you can see the roots are very healthy and green so I will leave well enough alone
