Indoor Orchids

Zone Newcastle upon Tyne | Jacqui B added on August 22, 2016 | Answered

Plant finished flowering about 2 months ago; however, there are 2 more sprouting from the main plant. These show no signs of flowering but have really healthy looking leaves. Should these be cut of to allow main plant to flower when it is time?
