    Some of the mini phals will literally bloom themselves to death. I love these little things. For being a small/young plant, they bloom easily and are a ton of fun to watch grow. Your's is a pretty one! I just bought a very similar deep purple one....I can't keep from buying the cute things.

    I had one that bloomed for more than 2 months - I actually got tired of it before it got tired of blooming! Seriously, though, they do bloom for ages, AND, if you start to see the blooms wilt towards the end, you can cut the spike and put it in water. It seems to perk them up for a week or two longer.
