Not sure, but I would cut off the next growth at the rhizome with a sanitized blade. Keep going until there's nothing sickly. Wash your hands along with sanitizing the blade.

I don't remove old medium from Oncs. I think doing so damages roots more than leaving it.

Be gentle with repotting. Don't try too hard to remove old medium. WW means, literally, shake it lightly for only 1-2 seconds. You're aiming not to damage roots at all. Some old medium will remain....

Phrags and Paphs grow a fan to maturity and flower from the center of that fan. They make offsets from the sides of the fan either before or after flowering. Then the already-flowered fan dies.

I tried this. I split a large bare-root piece into two, one in a terrarium and one in a shallow dish on top of sphagnum moss. When it got hot both died. So pay attention to temperatures.
