Well, I am a little lost in cyberspace here. But I will proceed anyway, even though BD's comment is dated 15 months ago.
My Coelogyne cristata supposedly needs a winter rest. This means it needs to be in a cool, dry, but bright location, and given only enough water to keep the bulbs from shriveling, during the winter months. This is because it comes from Southeast Asia or in that region where the winter is like that -- dry, cool, bright -- as opposed to the summer monsoon.
I believe my Cuitlauzina pendula needs the same, and I am going to try giving this treatment to my Dendrobium nobile hybrid. Again, I read and have been told that this is the way to get these to make blooms.
On the Central California coast, I had these plants outside, in shelter but with bright indirect light, all summer, and brought them in 6 weeks or so ago. Now they get bright eastern light, some southern light, cool in-house temps (drafty old house), and I will start the little-or-no water routine on the first day of winter. Will report back.
btw, some professional growers have told me they don't "rest" any of their orchids, so -- it's an experiment for me right now.
