    Hello everyone, I've just repotted my first denbrobium for someone. It has 3 stems with leaves, but about 8 big stems, no leaves, I assume have had flowers that have finished. Do I cut these off? thanks

    Don't cut them off. There are many types of dendrobiums and many bloom repeatedly from the leafless canes. These also provide a reserve for the plant should it encounter bad conditions.

    does the plant have a tag/label in it with the name of it?
