How to Grow and Care for Orchids

How long do orchids live?

Specifically I'm curious about the life expectancy of both Phalaenopsis and Dendrobium orchids...

If given good care, most Orchids are virtually immortal. There are plants alive today, which were brought into England in the early 1800s.
I think this covers the majority of them...
