  • the blooming time for orchids is almost up, so its going to happen either way but dont throw it away it will come back next season, just keep putting the ice on it three times a week to keep the roots healthy. its not dying the bloom is just pretty much done.

  • ice i thought you didn't water the flower much. i have only watered it twice since i got it and that was mothers day. yikes. are you sure about the amount of time to ice it?
