    you could probably do coerulea hybrids... they can take some lows. i've been researching vandas that can handle cymbidium climate, like here in southern california, and actually finding there are several, tracking them down has not been as easy, but i've recently gotten a vanda Paki, and found a place in santa barabra whose website is very helpful about what can handle similar temps. pm me if you want a link. my lows rarely go below 40 at night in winter.

    This is a Vanda Kultana Fragrance x Happy Smile (funny names, I know) that I got off the internet a few years ago. Haven't been able to re-bloom it since. I can get mini vandas to bloom but I guess I'm not doing something right with the larger ones. I've tried higher light, more fertiliser, watering everyday, etc ... but to no avail. I guess in my climate there's too many temperature and humidity changes for the plants.
    I have that same cross. It blooms several times a year for me.
