    Does anyone have personal experience dividing Lepanthes calodictyon? Does it handle dividing well?

    If you can hold the plant on opposite sides and wiggle it a bit you have a chance of finding a natural dividing point, that is the best chance of dividing safely. Usually it is better not to tear or cut it into pieces.
