Thanks for the reply. Strange though...the "orchid bible" mentions that it is a cool to cold growing epiphyte...hence why I was happy to take it. We get temps down to 5c in winter and only rarely as of yesterday do we get down to 3c here, would keeping it drier and brighter help do you think? my g/house only gets down to 6c in winter and has a high of about 24c. Will it die?
