Default Orchid Life Expectancy

Hi

I am fairly new to the whole gardening business and dont really have much knowledge on what I am doing. Its all trial and error at the moment.

I wonder if someone could help me. I had an orchid a couple of years back and after approx 2 months all the leaves fell off it and it was basically "a stick in a pot", so I threw it away.

I have been told that if I had kept it that it would have blossomed again. Not sure if this is true or not. If it does blossom again how long does this take and does it keep loosing its leaves and growing back again every year?

Also, if this is the case, how do you know when it is dead?

Thanks for your help.

Mark
