Alot of terrestrial orchids have winter rests. I highly recommend Disa orchids if you have good rainwater or RO water available.

There other Dens as well which like a cool winter but wont shed their leaves. They are quite happy down to lower temps, maybe 8-10 celsius as long as they're kept dry with good air movement.

Becareful grouping all Coelogyne as cool growers with rests. Most I believe are actually intermediates and warm growers, though its mainly the cooler species that are most common. White flowered Coel tend to be cooler, while greens and browns usually mean warmer, but of course its always best to check.
