I believe I named my Orchid wrong. How do I fix the name?

My Orchid is growing like crazy (air and ground roots). I water 1x a week and feed every other during warmer weather. However, my older leaves are yellowing. 2 have dried and fallen off on their own. You can see in the top pic there's a new sprout. I don't know if this is a spike or new plant (my first Orchid). Growing tells me it happy but the yellowing tells me something is wrong ... Any advice?

@teamgardentags: I need advice. My phalaenopsis is growing. It has new leaves and roots (both air and ground roots) which tells me it's happy, but, one of the older leaves are yellowing. Is this normal or could I be doing something wrong? Do I prune them off when they turn yellow?

@jennlamaye ... I did. I found this lil guy at Lowe's for $3 .. knew nothing about it. Researched Phalaenopsis; they grow in trees so I went to PetSmart and bought a piece of driftwood and mounted it to the driftwood.

That is so brilliant!! I'm going to have to take this idea! :)

@jennlamaye ... Do it! They like to feel secure but don't choak em out. I used both the bark medium along with the moss on top. The first time (shown above) I used sewing string to secure it. The second time I didn't use anything but the medium and it's happy. It's currently growing a new leaf, air root, and I believe it's growing a new spike. First time it's spiked for me (if it is a spike).
