    Question Bloomed out

    My Dendrobium just dropped it's last bloom. What do I need to do? Do I cut it back? Is now the time to repot it? It has lots of long roots coming out the top of the pot and going down to the water dish.

    I know this is an old thread but its exactly what I need to know. I have same plant and I need to know if you cut the whole spike off or all of it down to where it comes out of the leaves?
    thanks

    Mabuhay!

    @cythia...if it were my orchid i would cut off the old flower spike and leave just a really small portion where it comes out of the leaves. Now, if the "flower spike" is still fresh i would apply cinnamon or fungicide to the wound to prevent fungal infection.

    goodluck and happy new year

    Alright I have cut down to leaves and put cinnamon on it. Its not withered, its very fresh and still green and "alive" I guess you would say. This is my first Dendrobium so I dont really know how to treat it. Its a lovely plant and the flowers are great. I want to keep it as healthy as possible. Thank you so much for your response. I appreciate it.
    Happy New Year to you as well.
    Best
