It's ok. if she tries to climb, she will probably fall. It's fine though. If you really feel like the old is endangering her (we can't tell without pics) then move her into a new tube. Pics would be helpful.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

I moved her because the mold took over the cotton.
