    Well, it shouldn't be severely rootbound. Look for roots starting to poke out of the drainage holes in the bottom of the pot. When you see roots poking out, it's time to re-pot.

    Well, I grow mine in a 50/50 mixture of peat and perlite. They are very healthy.

    Oops, time to repot my green dragon. On second thought I'll wait till it goes dormant. I will then be putting all my vfts in one container.
