I have a mini Lai orchird that has two long tendrils that used to have purple flowers on them. All of the flowers have fallen off, so they are just bare tendrils now. Should I cut them back...or just leave them?

You can safely prune away the spent flower stems. Your plant will develop healthy new flowering stems and flowers after it has rested for a few months. Enjoy your orchid!
