Polianthes Tuberosa flower HELP plz

Hyderabad, India(Zone 12b)

Hi friends here are the pics of the beautiful plant I am growing in container.

That flowers pic is about 2 weeks back, now what's happening is that there are no more flowering buds on the spike (stem).

What shall I do now?, shall I cut the stem by half or else wait for flowering buds to appear?.

Burraganesh, once all the buds have opened on a flower spike, that spike is complete. It will not produce additional buds. Unless you want the spent flowers to set seeds, you can cut it back.
