    Default LC. loog tone after blooming

    So, I have a new(to me) LC. loog tone sd and it just finished blooming. Do I need to do anything special to the flower spike or do I just cut it back as far as I can? Or do I leave it alone?

    I just leave them alone and let the flowers fall off.

    cheers,

    What about the spike after the flowers fall off? Will it die back? Sorry if these questions seem stupid. I am new to Catts.

    the spike will shrivel and dry up, when it's dry it's easy to snap off with no damage to the plant, if you want to cut it off use something clean or sterile.
