    Default To cut or not?

    Hello all,
    I hope everyone is doing well. I'm sure there is a lot of excitement floating around concidering sping is right around the corner. I have a Doritaenopsis Tzu Chiang Prince that I received in August. It was spiking when I got it. After the bloom the spikes never died off like my other Phals. The spikes are still there and look strong. Should I cut them or is this a plant that will bloom again out of the same spike.

    If the plant is big and has healthy roots. I wouldn't cut. It will send new blooms for you

    You could cut it or let it grow. No worries as long as the plant stay healthy.
