I have a Mammarilia bocasana cv FRED who is trying to climb out of his pot? I am thinking of cutting it and putting sulpher on it and repotting it. It is hanging down to far to sit in a larger pot. I don't want to lose it? any Idea's Idea

If you cut it the plant should be fine and it just means fred will have a twin.

And if you are going to be cutting it I wouldn't be also re-potting the main plant as this would just be added stress. Let the plant recover before potting it up or vice-versa. Re-pot it and let it settle in before cutting it.

Just my opinion, although I don't think it would really matter - just to stay on the safe side.

That was from some years back, I grew it twin and silly gave the cutting away. In the flood lost my Fred so I am also looking for a replacement down the track. I believe he actually got away! maybe not climbed.
