RE: Orchid branches tunring yellow

i've been reading through past posts and i have another question. should i cut the stems/stalks down to where they aren't yellow anymore?

RE: Orchid branches tunring yellow

It is normal for the spent flowering stems to go yellow and then brown, though some Genera will flower again from the same flowering stem.
Read the FAQ about cutting the flowering stem down to the base or not.
I am assuming that your orchid is a Phalaenopsis.
