I'm looking for a division of this 'Chinook'. I don't care if it's 'Chinook' or not,
but I'm losing the very old one I have and am heartbroken. I suspect it's dying
of old age: I've had it for 20 or more years. Any suggestions will be deeply
appreciated.

No new growths? I’d look at the pot environment. I’m not aware of sympodial plants dying of old age. Individual growths, sure, but the new growths carry the colony on.

So far no new growths. I keep hoping and snooping. I can't think of
any reason for the deterioration...repotted 9/19 in the mix it's always
been in. Mix is Orchiata, charcoal and perlite and no pests that I
can see. The monster has never been divided and is in a12" clay
pot. I'm flummoxed and very, very sad.
