I got the big magenta orchid from my mom. I bought it six months ago and she got it to rebloom. Lets see how long the blooms last this time.
She did give me an interesting piece of advice that I want to share. When a bud is almost ready to bloom, squeeze it gently to help it open. Being indoors in low humidity, sometimes the orchids have a tough time opening and may turn yellow and fall off before opening.
