Indoor Orchid

I was given this recently and it lives in my kitchen. It appears healthy I am just wondering if it needs trimming or will it just keep getting taller? I have never had an orchid before.

It needs to be bright, but not in direct sun. After the blooms fade, they will fall off. You should leave this stem, as they can bloom again under the correct conditions.
