Cut off dried spike on Tolumnia Pink Panther

Tolumnia Pink Panther

     Tolumnias are known to be able to rebloom from side spikes, which grow after an initial round of flowers fades.  In fact, my Tolumnia Genting Orange produced three rounds of flowers over the course of three months last summer.  That's why when Tolumnia Pink Panther finished blooming at the end of January, I kept the spike around in hopes of seeing some side-branches form.

     That didn't happen, and instead the  spike dried up.  I'm not sure if this hybrid just doesn't form side spikes, or if future bloomings will turn out differently. The orchid is now into a new round of growth, with at least one new fan visible.
