    You are doing things the right way as you get them to reflower! :-)

    Just for your information:
    The phalaenopsis is warm growing but tend to set flower spikes when the temperature drops in the autumn. Take about 90 days from istart to flower, just count when you had the temperature drop ;-)
    The Dendrobium like a colder drier rest during the winter but as yours is reblomming you should not change your culture! It may just mess things up!

    The dendrobium can handle quite strong light compared with the phalaenopsis that tend to get sunburn damage if exposed to strong direct light.

    Why not test a Miltoniopsis or a Zygopetalum as have been suggested. I think they should do just fine with your plants as you grow them. Otherwise someone will correct me.
    Or, if you have a partial sunny outdoor place you could put an orchid in over the summer you can go for a miniature Cattleya. They are nice and grow well outdoor during the summers and they love alot of light. Though not direct sunlight all the day, and they need to be acclimatized slowly to outdoor light as the UV radiation is what can couse BIG damage before they get used to it!

    Just continue and explore!
