    The best time for repotting this plant is just following dormancy. That said, you shouldn't give fertilize until it begins to regrow. After which, fertilize the plant regularly with a fertilizer that is high in phosphorus to encourage blooming. If your plant already has growth, then you can give it a low dose of fertilizer once it recovers from the stress of repotting.
