What do I do with the plants after the blooms have dies? Do I cut off the stalk?
What about the leaves? My plant is about 10 years old and 2 years ago I had only one flower. This year I have 8 beautiful flower stalks. The flowers have dies on 2 of the stalks and 1 is yet to fully bloom. I heard that each plant only blooms once. Is that correst

Cut off stems... if rosette dies, too, remove it, but it may split and form another rosette that may flower in the future.
