trimming orchids?
    #4561568 - 08/21/05 02:54 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

So I know these don't get u high but they sure are pretty to look at. I have one where it flowered and tons of flowers died off so the stem is long with no flowers. Am I supposed to cut it off know? It is excreting sap at the points of previous flowers.

Yeah, if it's finished flowering then just cut off the stem with a sharp knife.

Here are mine!

Very pretty, openminded. :smile: Would you mind sharing the specific cultivation parameters you've used, temp, humidity, light, etc. Because I can't seem to get my orchids to flower.
Thanks!

I really don't do anything special, I think they might just be easy varieties to get to flower. I try to keep them in bright spots when they're not flowering, but when they start to flower I just move them to wherever I want them to be, so sometimes they get hardly any light at all. They're at room temperature, and I don't mist them or anything... They must just be easy varieties!

Yeah, I'd chop it off if I were you. If there are no flowers on it then there's no reason to keep it on!
Also, I should say that in my opinion, buying a bag of cheap orchid compost is a good idea. They do seem to like it a lot more than other stuff. A little tub of orchid fertiliser wouldn't do any harm, either!

As the old growth yellows and gets old i clip them down to the bloated stem sheath. The newer leafes will grow out from the center.

But thats with the species i have. There is a huge amount of variation and any information on triming on the plants you have will most likely need to be learned by trial and error.
