The Q&A Archives: Orchids

Question: Orchids: After they bloom and the blub turns brown, should you pull it off of the plant or leave it on? I have three on one is empty and the other two feels hard as if there is a bulb inside. Thank you.

Answer: When the flowers are spent, cut the entire flowering stalk down to foliage level. After resting and regaining its strength, your orchid will produce another flowering stalk.
