    I have a Brassia that just finished dropping all its blooms. Do I cut the spike or leave it? Will it re-bloom like a Phalenopsis or not?

    Any one else grow these orchids, I think they are the prettiest there is.

    I have a brassia...a pic of it is posted on another thread in this forum. Its a b. 'Spiders Feast' and I love it! When mine finished blooming I cut the spike off (as it was dead).

    They will certainly rebloom but not off a spent spike. The will rebloom on new growth. My brassia is setting out lots of roots and new growths so I'm hopeful for flower spikes eventually. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I love the brassia as well and hope to get more.
