congo cockatoo plant

hants, United Kingdom Gb

I was given a cutting of a congo cockatoo plant which I have been feeding with tomato feed. It has been flowering profusely for several months and foliage is very healthy. My question is when is it safe to re-pot it as it has grown considerably since I have had it and pot is now far too small - however I am reluctant to disturb it while it is in flower although it shows no sign of stopping and has new buds appearing constantly! Many thanks



I don't think it matters when you re-pot it. I've done mine in summer and it was OK, apart from one shoot which broke off - which I put it in a mug of water to root - giving another plant.
