Default Orchid Life Expectancy

depends on the type of orchid. some types (nobile dendrobiums, for
instance) are deciduous and can lose their leaves. others shouldn't
be losing leaves. with proper care, orchids can live for decades (and
even bloom

or they can fall over dead when you bring them in the house, just out
of spite.

it totally depends on the type of plant. don't let that stop you from
trying again though.
