Neglected orchid going to bloom - i think?
For the first time ever I think an orchid is going to rebloom for me.
I received it as a housewarming present in October 2010 when it was in bloom (Phal).
I never cut the bloomstalk and it never died back until about 2 months ago and then only half. I am the great procrastinator.
Then a few weeks ago, what I thought was a root, pierced through one of the leaves.
I believe it is a bloom stalk?
As you can see, it is leaning towards the light.
I am totally thrilled that I finally live somewhere with the proper environment for orchids, but I'm thinking maybe I should stake it or something?
It doesn't feel very flexible so I'm not sure what to do.
And should I cut the old one off? half way or at the base?
Thanks in advance for your advice!
