Cut the entire stalk unless there is another flower developing from the same stalk. If so, just cut the spent flower by itself...at the 'spathe', where the flowers emerge from the stem. (The hard beak-like bract/spathe sits horizontally. The spathe normally holds 4 to 16 flowers, each flower composing of 3 orange sepals and 3 blue petals).
