My mom gave me this orchid for Valentine's Day last year. It did really well for many months, and finally both stems dried up and died. The leaves were still really glossy and green, so I just kept it watered and sitting in the window. Some time in the fall, a new stem appeared and took several weeks to grow all the way up. The blooms have finally arrived, and they open one by one.
Three (much slower)
Still waiting on four and five, and maybe even six ...
