Personally, I like to do my repotting as soon as the new growth appears. That way I can orient the bulb to give the new growth plenty of room in the pot. Then hold off watering until the roots are long. By then, the new leaves will be spreading out a bit also.

There is lots of cultural information on Fred Clark's website:
Great advice!
