Kim,
I'm surprised that you had rot problems from rain. Mine get watered every day in summer, every 2-3 days in winter (depending on the weather) However, all are either mounted or in open baskets, so they are dry in a few hours. Summer humidity is likely lower than yours, though at least the last two summers it has been high enough for lots of complaining (close to 60% at mid-day)

Thank you all! I definitely will (or, should) put mine outside as soon as the winter ends.

It's ok to just leave it be. Otherwise, I think that metal cutting tin-snips should be able to do the trick. The tin-snip cutters have enough force to nip through various parts of that mesh. Careful snipping could avoid damage to the roots, and even be able to recover all or most of the roots. I assume it is plastic mesh. The roots look fantastic.

Why argue with success? It is happy growing on its current mount. I can see no reason to change to anything else. Leave it, let it be happy.

I agree. The tin-snips is for situations where somebody - for some reason - wanted to unmount. There was a mention of "it's impossible to unmount".
