Based on its "family tree" it is a sequential bloomer - for a start, it's 2/3 Phal violacea. The other 1/3 of its ancestry are all species with a similar characteristic. (Keep nice and warm...)

I don't think you need the heat mat this time of year... it'll just have the effect of drying out the medium too fast. As for the orientation of the photos... that's a "feature" of the Orchid Board...

I think that it would be wise to spray everything. Soapy water gets a number of pests... basically it drowns any invertebrate that breathes though pores in its body. Of course, it only gets the...

My Stenoglottis (longifolia and otherwise) are wet, pretty much stay that way. And they get tap water. Not fussy. They also live outside. No particular TLC.

I don't think the pot makes much difference... the tubers are fairly large, so to give them room, a standard-form pot is probably better. Remember, too, that terrestrials are much less picky about...

This is the time of year for new growth on Cymbidiums. So even if you lose the new growths, there will very likely be more - which will also produce new roots. I think that it needs to move...
