cymbidiums grow well where i live. there are a few types though, yours has thick looking leaves, so i will assume it is the more common 'regular' miniature hybrid that grows similar to a 'standard' cymbidium orchid hybrid coming from mountainous regions of asia. they can handle cold weather down to 28f or so, for short periods of a few hours overnight with no damage. they can also handle periods of dry heat in the 100f daytime range for a few weeks. they flower once a year, in a particular season late fall to spring depending on type, so feeding schedule follows the pattern for your plant. they usually need some cool temps to initiate the spiking. i give them dappled sun to very bright indirect light. like sit them in the shade, but where they will get a lot of bounce-light from sun reflecting off of a white wall. they bloom like clockwork. i have seen people growing them in their trees here outside.
then there are the warm growing types, species and hybrids with smaller more delicate leaves and flowers from warmer parts of asia, china mostly i think. they cannot take the extreme cold as much, but bloom in the heat of summer. they are winter-houseplants here. or greenhouse plants. i find them to slowly decline and die out if left outside for a few years. there us a very nice hybrid called golden elf. lemon scented.
both types like deep pots, and the bagged bark mixes you see in any shop will do. size per the roots of the plant. smaller roots, smaller grade bark. i replace the bark every 2 years. try not to bother the roots much, if bark sticks, leave it there, don't pick the roots apart. but don't let the bark get mushy, let it dry between waterings. part of the year they are not really growing, and don't need as much water. try not to get water down into the bulbs, the little pockets formed by the leaves. if you do, tip the plant on its side and let it drain. it might rot otherwise. water in the morning, and if it is really cold, or going to be, skip the watering completely.
