Anacho orchid tree

Anonymous added on July 1, 2014 | Answered

I have an anacho orchid tree that is fairly young and is about 7 feet tall. It is covered in seedpods which are weighing the branches down. They have been on there for a long time and I am concerned that it is going to ruin the shape of the tree because of how far they are bending the branches. Should I remove them?

You can remove them. It will not hurt the tree and may actually help, as the tree will be better able to send energy to things like growing roots and branches rather than producing seeds (that you don't want anyway).
