    Its all relative ! Many cymbidiums were bred in England, or New Zealand ; and what we call warm you will think is overcoat weather. Yes, that is a joke, but not much of one ! We have just had , or are in the middle of, our best summer for 37 years according to the Met' Office ; we had 3 weeks of continuous sunshine in July with temperatures reaching 26 degrees C here on the South Coast - although warmer inland , and warmest in London - Heathrow Airport recorded 34 degrees one day, but only one day, and that made the headlines.
    So cyms which will stand that or even like that are heat tolerant to us. Otherwise we often put them all outside for the summer where the average temperatures are nearer the 20 mark. Some will think that chilly !

    Been years since mine last bloomed. It had a near death experience and is still recovering I suspect.
