Stem of phal regrowing and accidentally broke
I have had my phal orchid for over a year now. I finally got a new spike to form and was looking forward to seeing new blooms. I was trying to place the stem along a wire form that was provided originally to help keep the orchid in form. As I was doing this, the part of the stem with the newly developing buds fell off. There is still about 12 inches of stem left and it appears that there are 2 "nodes" distal to the break. I was just wondering what I should do exactly? Should I leave it be just the way it is? Should I cut back the stem to one of the nodes? or should I completely cut off the entire stem to the base of the leaves? I have read some posts about putting cinnamon on the "open" part of he stem where it broke off. Would this help or hurt it? And do I need to worry about it drying out now if I don't do anything. If someone could please let me know what to do I greatly appreciate it. I'm very upset because I have waited 8 long months for it to bloom again and hope that there is a chance it still might. Thank you!
