Too soon to repot again?

I got a mini phal almost 2 months ago (The one in my avatar) and it was being grown in straight sphag, so I repotted it into coarse fir bark with some sphag as soon as I got it home. Now the flowers are starting to fade and I'd like to mount it on a nice piece of cedar, but i'm afraid it would be too much stress to mess with it again. What do you guys think?

If it is growth mode with new roots growing I can see no problem.
I only mount Phal species so i do not know how mini Phals will grow mounted, all my minis are now in bud and vigorous root system so i would give it a go.
Keep us updated

I'll wait until it's done blooming and I cut off the spike and can see new roots. I haven't noticed any new roots or leaves yet, so I'll give it some more time.
