    Hi Kath-
    Sadly, without a greenhouse ar conservatory Cymbidiums are difficult to overwinter- inside a house the conditions are often just too warm... the plant deteriorates and dies. Most of the Cymbidiums on the market in the UK are bred from species originating in the cool Asian highlands. HOWEVER you can try some of the warm-growing lowland species and their hybrids. These tend to be daintier and not so easy to find but they are out there on the market. A bonus is that they do not need keeping outdoors in the warm part of the year. Some breeding in America I have seen is producing warm growing forms with ever larger and brighter flowers. I find shifting my Standard Cymbidiums a real pain, but they are breathtaking and fabulous and ultimately worth the bother. (I should explain that I am very lazy!)
