Penny's Progress

I named my orchid Penny. I fuss over her a lot. I spray her with the spray bottle almost every day and water her on Fridays (I've switched to the ice cube method). I keep my fingers crossed that it is warm enough for her and that she is getting enough light. I suppose she is doing okay.
The flowers are falling off the largest spike. I know that's natural, but it still isn't cool.
Several leaves have also turned yellow and fallen off. I'm so glad this plant has more than 2 or 3 leaves. The leaves seem to have stabilized. I don't see any more that are turning yellow. So far Penny's progress is okay I guess.

My plant only has four leaves. Correction, HAD four leaves. Now she's down to three. I'm switching to the ice-cube method as well. We'll see if she survives the year.
