    Question Den. Anosum question

    The flowers on my anosum have faded. What do I do with the flower stalk now? Do I cut it, or leave it there? Will it rebloom on that stalk next year or is it like other orchids that only bloom from new growth. I've never grown anosum before, so don't have a clue. Any help appreciated and thanks in advance.

    Den. anosmum canes usually just flower once.
    But I would not cut off an old cane from any dendrobium unless it is absolutely dead or has an infection that could spread to the rest of the plant.

    The old canes always have a chance that they will grow keikis from any nodes that somehow did not produce flowers.
