Q.Care of orchids indoors

Zone Portland, ME 04103 | Elaine G McGillicuddy added on July 10, 2017 | Answered

I was given three orchids in a large pot almost two years ago. They clearly love their location in front of a bow window facing SW. I water them 2x a week and let them dry out before watering again. Some of the blossoms started to wilt last year. After I repotted them they visibly thrived and grew taller and taller – up to two feet. During this time I didn’t notice any wilting blossoms at all. Now that wilting phenomenon has begun again.
What I’m wondering is: Might they be getting too tall?
Should orchids ever be pruned back to soil let? Or – WHERE should they be cut when all the blossoms of a stem have wilted and dropped off?
Thank you for any suggestions you can give me.
