    Do you have an orchid of the month club? I had surgery and someone gave me a beautiful orchid. The flowers are still blooming but the leaves are coming off yellow at the bottom. It is in a ceramic pot What is wrong with the plant and can I save it. It only has two leaves but all the blooms are still there

    I purchased a blue sapphire plant and want to ensures years of growing. I don't want to over water it so I just put 3 small ice cubes on it once a week. Is that enough?
