This lokos like a mess. Is the plant healthy?

I would remove the rocks, which are partially glued together. Then look at the soil.
The plant should be planted a bit deeper.

A full repot is best done in late spring, early summer for tropical plants. If you are heading into winter now, consider lifting this out of the current container. Take a container a size larger and fill te space with good quality potting soil, making sure you bury the roots as much as possible. Then wait for spring.
