    Default Brsdm. bloom stalk....

    I have a Brsdm. Shooting Star 'Black Gold' that I picked up a month or two ago at our local orchid show, in bloom.

    The blooms have slowly finished/dried up from the one stalk. Should I now cut that stalk back? If so, the whole thing?

    Thanks!

    Cute it off about 1/2 inch above where it started to grow. No need to get it too close to the pb!

    Cheers!
