About this article
To prune an orchid, wait until it goes dormant in late fall so that you do not do permanent damage when mowing it. Then use sharp scissors to cut off any black or damaged parts of the leaves so that the disease does not spread. If an entire leaf is yellow or withered, gently pull it to remove it. After cutting the leaves, remove the orchid from its pot to look for any brown or distorted roots and cut them off with scissors before repositioning the plant.
