There was a thread on here a while ago that I found when my orchid dropped all its flowers.

It said to cut the stem at a certain point and it should re-flower.

I'll try and find the thread and link to it

It may well come again. I just water mine a bit every week or so and give it some orchid food when I remember and they do flower again.

In the meantime you could get some fake orchid flowers to stick in with the leaves and people don't notice the difference!

some tips here about cutting it back

This is what I did to mine and although it hasn't flowered again yet it is, at least, still alive !

I am generally the kiss of death to house plants so pretty impressed I have managed to keep it going this long-there are buds on the stems so maybe it will flower again.The bit about cutting the stem sounds familiar too-
