    I would keep them in a warm sunny locale. Try to keep their humidity up...maybe hang them in the bathroom when you shower? And yes they should rebloom. While lighting is important, with the Vanda types you also need to be sure they get enough fertilizer. They are "heavy feeders". I use a variety of organic fertilizers that I switch between for mine to be sure they get all the micronutrients. There are others here...northern growers that do well with Vanda. I'm sure they have a few secrets...
