So never bury your plant's aerial roots and keep them warm - a minimum of 10°C, even at night - and humid (mist every day with tepid water). Give them a bright windowsill out of direct sunlight and water weekly, adding orchid fertiliser every third watering, and they should produce those ravishing flowers for many years.
