Granddaughter gave this orchid last year for Mother's day. I followed the directions, said to water with 3 ice cubes once a week. Now look at it. Wow it has been blooming for 3 weeks!

thats what I thought " Ice Cubes?" the plant looks better than when she gave
it to me. Nice big green leaf's. Best one I have seen in a long time. Now if I could get my other one to look as good.

I'll give them a go on one that I cannot get to rebloom. In 18 months since the blooms faded it has produced 8 extra leaves that are as big as elephants ears, but not one flower spike.
