everblooming valentine orchid

It has been more a year and the Phaleonopsis we bought on Valentine's Day last year is still blooming.  The bloom spike, unwound, measures 61 inches.

Bearss Groves is on my way home from work.  I stop there every week for fresh squeezed orange, or tangerine, or grapefruit juice.  Lately, they've also had Phaleonopsis orchids by the register, one for 8 dollars, or two for 15.  I cannot resist!  I've bought four of them in the last two weeks.  Maybe there will be another perpetual bloomer.
