I did not cut the spike onmy orchid when it finished blooming, but just left it. It now has new spikes that have grown about 2 nodes down - should I cut off the excess?



Can we see a photo please.I would say yes to cut .
others may say different but works for me.

I would cut off to just above where the new flower spires are growing.
