Some advice about new orchid plant re-potting


I have a phalaenopsis orchid that originally had two spikes. When they finished blooming I cut them to above one of the nodes on each spike. From there, two new plants have grown (see picture).

I haven't been around for a while and now I am back at home the roots on these small plants are about 20 cm long.

I want to cut the small plants off and re-pot them but I don't know what to do about the long roots? I would need a very large pot to make sure the roots are not damaged, but the plant itself is very small. Each of the new plants has a flower spike already.

Any advice would be brilliant and please ask me any questions if you need to know more.
