    Default a question on wintering a couple of my orchids

    In Canberra our winter temps are from -5c to 20c on average 23 f to 68 f what should i do with my oncidium alliances and Brassia and my Bifrenareas at the moment they are out in the bubble wrapped green house with the cymbidiums and dendrobiums. Will they handle the low temps or should i bring them inside? By the way there is no heating in the green house. It hasn't hit that low yet but it wont be long

    They should not get below 55 F. If it will be colder than that, I would bring them in the house.

    Agree with Kathi.
    Inside the house will be necessary.
