New Dendrobium Question

Hey everyone....So, I recently acquired my first dendrobium and I am uncertain about what I should be doing with the parts of it that look old and past the leafing stage....I am including pics -- should I take these out or just leave them there???....If I need to remove them, how exactly do I do this without hurting the plant???....Thanks!!!!

Don't remove anything that is green and firm. Those old stalks--really pseudobulbs--are serving as nutrient and moisture storage for the plant. Some dendrobiums bloom from older stalks also. That's a nice-looking plant; do you know the name?
