How to Care for your Phalaenopsis Moth O...
The above picture shows the scissors cutting above the second stem node. However, if you prefer a complete new stem, shooting from the base of the plant, cut as low into the stem as possible without damaging the leaves or roots. A new stem will grow, although this will take longer to develop than the previous method of cutting. The visual effect of cutting the stem as low as possible is more pleasing, and looks more natural (as you don't have the flower stem branching from the old one).
