    Default Wintering mounted orchids inside

    For those of you that have a large number of mounted orchids, how do you maintain them during winter months if you need to bring them inside?

    Thanks!

    I just hang mine in our bathroom, on the Shower Box and towel rail. The window in our bathroom faces west and warms up nicely in the afternoon. Morning humidity from our showers does wonders! Cheaper than some of those expensive humidifiers and stuff too

    Before I made my grow room I grouped all them together and had an ultrasonic humidifier above them with the vapor cascading over them...they seemed to like it...

    Thanks everyone for the the replies. To avoid having to make a purchase I decided to put them in the restroom. The window glass is frosted so the light is not as bright as I would like but I think the humidity is better than lots of light (right now being winter).
