The flower on my P Maudiae is starting to rapidly fad. Once the flower falls off, how do I handle the bloom spike? Will there be a second flower or should I cut it back?

This is my first blooming Paph, so forgive the basic question. Thanks.

If there isn't a bud there at the moment then there shouldn't be a second flower. It hasn't happen on a maudiae for me yet, but if there was a second flower then it would have started developing before the bloom wilted. You can cut it with sterile scissors or let it dry up and snap it off.
