Stuff is Growin: Orchids!

So Jennifer gave me an orchid years (5? 6?) ago after her coworker left the office and abandoned it... For years I've been diligently watering this plant, which consisted of a couple of large leaves and a bunch of roots.

Last year, what I thought was another lumpy root growth turned out to be a spray of huge, gorgeous magenta orchids that lasted for weeks and weeks. I figured when that spray wilted, that was it for the next 5 or 6 years. But, lo!, this year another spray emerged and I was able to get some good photos.
