Linda, as soon as the pod is strong enough to support itself, strip away all extra plant material from the stalk. . . old blooms, old spath fans, and any old fans that might be clinging to the base of the stalk.  I carry a pair of small scissors in my pocket and cut off the old bloom from the end of the pod.  I'm careful about the spath that supports the pod as it is really easy to knock a pod loose.  Sometimes the spath tissue will be stuck to the pod and the tweezers are good for peeling it loose. 
If you don't cross them, you can't  plant them!
