My orchid is starting a new shoot and the leaves are very large. Should I replant it now? What is the best medium for replanting?

Orchids bloom best when they are rootbound so don't be in a hurry to replant yours. If the roots are pushing it out of the pot you can replant in bark chip orchid mix (available at most garden centers) in a slightly larger pot. Orchids are usually happy in the same container for 4-5 years. Best wishes with your orchid!
