To cut ... or NOT to cut???
I have a couple of phals and have been reading both directions and am getting so confused! I've only be successful in getting one to rebloom - on the old stems of one I bought last year.
Now I was gifted with a Blue Diamond (the horror of it!) and the tag says:
"when flowers fade, cut spike near the base of the plant, and put the plant in a new location for 4-8 weeks. Keep the temperature consistent at 50-60*F. When a new flower spike emerges, return plant to original location to encourage flowering."
I have never been lucky enough to have a new stem grow on any of these plants, but as I said, was finally successful on the old stems of last years purchase.
What to do? What to do???
