My phaleonopsis orchid finished blooming in October. The leaves still look healthy, but there are no blooms. Should I cut the stalk all of the way down to the leaves?

Yes, cut the stalk down and wait for a new one to appear. Be sure that your plant gets 70 degree temperatures during the day and 60 degrees at night. It needs 10-15 hours of bright light each day, moist soil, and high humidty. This extra humidity can be just around the plant - simply place the pot on a tray of pebbles and put water in the tray. Your orchid will bloom again in time.
