monkey puzzle tree repotting?

so about two months ago I got a young monkey puzzle tree, in that time it's grown alot concidering how slow growing they're said to be. my question is what type and size of pot should I use? (I am due to move home at some point this summer but I don't know when)

I belive it's in a coconut shell and fiber based soil. should I pot it with more of the same?

I'm in southwest UK where they survive anytjing and the others in and out of town are just now producing their cones!

what about feeding?

any advice is welcome, I wish not to plant it into the ground anywhere.

If you're moving soon I'm not sure why you think it needs repotting at all. It looks perfectly happy and I should think it would be fine in that pot until after the move.

it's still in the pot it came in.

but what about the other questions? the feeding?
