Mature plants can flower up to twice a year. When the last remaining flower has fallen off, the flower spike may be cut just below the node where the first bloom appeared. It is possible that a new flower spike will form within four weeks following this procedure, and within 90 to 120 days new blooms will open. If this does not occur, the flower spike will enentually dry and can then be removed at the base. A new flower spike will then form within the next year at a new leaf axil.
