Orchid lifespans and dying in childbirth

What's the average lifespan of your basic orchid? And is it possible for one to live for about twenty-two years, provided it's been properly maintained? One of my characters has an orchid plant that her mother was raising as a memento, as her mother died while giving birth to her and she's never known her, and her uncle has taken care of it for quite some time until she was old enough to. Google hasn't been much help here.

And, while I'm here, I need a quick reason that her mother might have died in childbirth (this is set in the modern day) that would have been fairly sudden and unexpected. I know this popped up once before, but I don't think it made it into the memories.
