This plant does best when very crowded in the container so you probably do not need to repot it yet. Also, I would not recommend repotting in midwinter, nor just before it blooms as this can stress it. When you eventually do need to repot, use a soilmix that matches what it is already growing in as closely as possible. Enjoy your Bird of Paradise!
