Amazing what you can do when money is no object.  The Germans who were big in hybridizing cool-growing orchids had large "cool houses" to keep them happy.

Many years ago, amid acres of cattleyas, Hausermann's in Chicago had a little space devoted to cloud-forest species, with cooling and misters going all the time in summer.  Luckily most of those orchids are small to tiny, so you could host a reasonably good assortment  on your kitchen table.
