Orchids can live decades but typically after around 15 - 20 years, the amount of flowers will decrease, and the plant will begin slowly declining in vitality. Naturally occurring fungi and bacteria eventually take there toll on the plant's health.

How often should orchids be watered? In general, water once a week during the winter and twice a week when the weather turns warm and dry. The size of your orchid container also helps determine how often you need to water, regardless of climate conditions. Typically, a 6-inch pot needs water every 7 days and a 4-inch pot needs water every 5 to 6 days.

Do orchids have seed pods? How long does it take a pollinated orchid flower to mature into a pod? Once a flower has been pollinated, you're looking at about 4 months (120 days) to 8 months (240 days) for that flower pod to mature and produce viable seed.

What is the smallest seed? There, Jesus says, “The kingdom of heaven is_like to a grain of mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade."
