How Is My Orchid Even Alive?

I have not been the best plant parent for my orchid.

When I don’t have seed starts in the closet, I forget to go in there and water it.

I leave the grow lights on 16 or more hours a day.

I don’t fertilize it.

And my vanilla orchid just keeps growing and sprawling out across my shelves so I have to wrap it up AGAIN around the pot.

It’s the plant on the bottom right. You can see its vines have escaped the pot AGAIN and are crawling off somewhere doing orchid things.

Ah, well.

Seems happy.
