sparaxis or Harlequin

Should I cut off the whole stem once all on that stem are dead ? These are all in bloom from a second stem and all already have bloomed on a previous stem which is now going to seed. Should I cut it off so the plant focuses on the flowers on the other stem ? Will it promote another flowering stem to pop up or do they only put up a certain amount of flowing stems ? I will add pictures later on hopefully.

    Sad now.

    Have I upset everyone ?

    Doesn't anyone grow these ?

    If I was on my laptop I would use the emoticon with great big crocodile tears. In fact I' might even turn it on so I can use the proper message editor and add all the sad emoticon faces.

    Sorry Frannerz imageimage

    I've never grown sparaxis - but I imagine that they're similar to other bulbs in that the flowers are in the bulbs before they grow - so what I would do now is to feed the bulbs to help them form plenty of buds in the bulb for next year image

    Thankyou Dovefromabove.

    I still have so many of the basics to learn.

    Thankyou for your, much appreciated, help and advice. I thought maybe I had used a gardeners world forum expletive. Lol

    Thanks again x
