My orchid is now on its second bloom! I got this as a gift nearly five months ago. It has been without buds for nearly 2 months but I kept going and this is the longest I’ve kept one! I’ve had many orchids die on me before but I finally found the key to keeping them: indirect sunlight! I keep mine in my kitchen window and it has done remarkably well. I also water it once a week and put feed in once a month. If you do this I promise you will keep your orchid alive. Go buy one!
