Default Zygo. Jumpin jack

Just picked up a zygo jumping jack yesterday and after a stupid little oversight on my part this morning it took a spill and slipped its pot a little , not the end of the world itís on carpet but Iím the process I realize itís super super overgr With roots. Itís in great shape and has two spikes with developed buds ( weíll see if they hold up its in a room with 50 percent hUmidity and a humidifier attached to an ink bird with a fan blowing for air flow , bout 74 degrees sheer curtain southern window few feet back the works.... anyway my concern is repotting medium .... if I had to guess Iíd say itís in a 3-4 inch square pot il measure later , I donít plan to repot until after the blooming is over and itís settled a bit ( September -November ?) I plan to go up to a 5 inch round just because I donít like the growth patterns in square pots it looks like torture lol, regular plastic pot , seems people recommend a medium bark mix which Iím thinking of going with the repotme make a blend and doing 12 scoops for the bag 4 orchiata medium 4 sponge Rockne 2 small bark 2 nz spag if that sounds about right ? Any help or concerns Iíd appreciate!

Mine is in a moss mix and a clay pot. Always damp and quite happy. I don't think the need a special mix.

It's repotme.com's Imperial phal mix. I use it for all my oncidiums tribe and phals.

I've used both. I currently have the Imperial. Many OB members don't like repotme.com for various reasons. I like their products, which do well for me, and I always stock up so I get free shipping. The one time I had to use their customer service they were attentive.

I've used all three of the moss based mixes: Gold classic, AAA Imperial and Monteray Gold Imperial.
