Congrats! One of my favorites :)

I don't see anything that needs to be cut off.

Cycnoches will rarely have > 2 year old back bulbs. Just let the plant decide when to absorb the bulb.

Moss grows all over my grow room but my humidity stays above 75% and is usually 85%.

You would be better off soaking the wall twice a day instead of just misting.
