Funnel leaves on my dendrobium orchid

The lower edges of the leaf appear to be fusing together and enclosing the stem. The extent of fusion has increased significantly from the first distorted leaf to the next, and the next leaf is likely to be even worse. This cane will probably rot at the apex/growing tip for lack of light, air circulation and room to grow? What could have caused this and would it make sense to manually cut/split the fused part to try ro restore normal growth.
