They hate to be repotted, but if the plant is showing signs of stress from being root bound, like yellow leaves, then go ahead and repot it now. Move it to a new container that is at least 2" larger than the current pot. This article is about repotting, but the steps would be essentially the same: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/hpgen/learn-more-about-repotting-houseplants.htm
