I got my Zygopetalum mackayi from Santa Barbara Orchid Estate and they grow them alongside their Cymbidium.

A lot of the Oncidium and related hybrids are pretty tolerant of cool temperatures too. The Orchid Estate grows Beallara Marfitch out with their Cymbidium and the similar NOIDs that I've picked up at grocery stores are doing well outside for me with my Cymbidium too.

If you go to their website: Santa Barbara Orchid Estate Home Page anything that they have listed as temperature tolerant survived a record low of 27 degrees Fahrenheit in their unheated greenhouse.

As an outsider, the low temperature surprises me but I know that California is quite cool on the coast from when we had a touring holiday over there in 2000 and the mountains must get cold in winter, even though itís ferociously hot in summer. Thanks for the link. All grist to the mill of orchid knowledge!

Hello. Gosh donít you just love zygos I know I do itís my fav orchid. My zygos are coming outta winter funk unscathed. I think I might possibly have a flower spike on one of my zygos. Does this look anything like yours did before that breathtaking bloom? Thanks

That looks very much like a spike to me. Well done! I still only have the one but I'll be looking for more this year.
