I have this Barbosella cogniauxiana that has some parts growing beyond the mount. Is it okay to cut this portion off and then remount on a different mount, or is there a more ideal length of growth before I should try and cut it.

As long as it has decent roots, and it looks like it does, I'd say go for it.

Have mounted a portion of the Barbosella..actually I got this idea from another forum wherein olla pots where used as mounts. Just experimenting to see if it will work with an old chia planter. So have re-purposed this old chia planter..now using it for the Barbosella. I just added a wine stopper, for aesthetics and to plug that hole to deter insects from coming in. Big Grin
So far the Barbosella seems okay, container feels cool and damp to the touch, which I know this orchid likes a lot.
