I am very proud of this orchid, it was first given to me in 2008 and when it died I kept the plant alive and on Nov 7th 2009 I noticed a 4" flowering stem growing, the first bloom opened on mar 8th 2010 and was in full bloom on Mar 30th it is still as fresh today May 28th and going strong, I am wondering how long it will last.

Lovely Vileve ... they're funny things think they're gone then they grow a new bit & off they go again!
