    Man, the more I look at it the more I'm convinced you should divide it. Looks like the part that is attached to the tree is on the left in the 1st image. In any case I would cut it where it meets that branch. Glenn's suggestion of using zip ties to attach the rest to another branch is really good. Those things are strong as heck! Flowers are gorgeous!

    First off it has under gone a name change to Myrmecophila, some go along with these name changes others do not.

    If this was in my back yard on a tree I would be tying it up to grow on the entire tree trunk, limbs and all, a very impressive Myrmecophila!

    It is in Southern Florida at the top of the Florida keys. It is in mottled sun. Some of the strongest growth is up the one tree branch which gets a little more sun. Last year when I bought the house it had been neglected for a couple of years. Last year it had 7 flower spikes.

    I do not know how old it is. I will ask my 89 year old neighbor if she has an idea of the age.

    The lip is wide open, maybe it is rather Myrmecophila grandiflora.
    Wonderful plant.

    Here is my grandiflora :
