I've read several online guides about taking care of sun star, Ornithogalum dubium, plants, but I'm confused about how to trim off the spent flowers. The instructions say to "remove spent flowers from the base, and another guide says to gently pull them out (and that it wouldn't harm the plant).
I can easily pull the individual spent flowers out of the spike:
Or am I supposed to pull the entire thing out of the plant? I tried to gently pull one of them out (one without any flowers on it) but it wouldn't budge. Should I be cutting the entire spike off? How do I trim the spent flowers here?
