my e. cochleata is very much in need of repotting. How do I divide it as it is growing out of the pot. I'll try putiing a pic of it on here.Carolyn51
I agree with miller just do keep a number of pseudo bulbs intact.
There shouldn't be a problem . I always treat any cuts on my orchids with wood glue and don't have any distresses.
Thank you, I will do this. Carolyn51

Thank you, I am assuming the wood glue seals the cuts. Carolyn51
I would do at least 3-5 p-bulbs per division. Keep the front lead for yourself and once established you will have some trading fodder. I use a new, single edge razor blade to do the division and then chuck it out. I have never sealed where I cut and never had a problem. E chochleata is a hardy species.
What is the front lead? Is it the farthest out from the original bulb? Thanks.
I'll only add what good advice all the above people posting in response to your question have given. It proves to me again how little I still know. AL
