I understand your sentiments Sadie. My Dtps Lava Glow is doing the same thing. I have two spikes that are now arched over and and reach down to the base of the plant. I keep thinking...."well, she could probably use a rest"...but at the same time I just LOVE the blooms! Eventually I'll break! I would hate to do anything to damage the plant itself...of course it has also made 2 new leaves...and I do give it lots of food!
