Smile To Repot or Not to Repot?

I need some advice here. My grandmother gave me this orchid and a few others around April/May--she can't keep up with them anymore. Anywho, this one was pretty dry and with only a few decent aerial roots. I potted her up immediately, and look at her now! I'm so proud of myself and the plant! I don't know if the pictures do her root system any justice, but they look like they're ready to bust out. Should I repot her or leave her as is? She's doing so well in there that I'd really hate to disturb her.

It looks happy and I don't see any reason for repotting. There's stil plenty of room for the roots to grow.
If everything goes well, next spring might be the time to consider repotting.

I think it's doing great and I wouldn't change anything. Congratulations on the wonderful care you're giving it. Down the road when it's obviously outgrown the pot you should wait until after it finishes blooming and then repot. For now, just enjoy.

Thanks for all the advice! She's staying in there until I see blooms! She's a NOID, I don't even know what her blooms look like. I can't wait
