Mine was too big to put in with the other orchids in their more humid environment. It spent the winter in the house near a south and a west facing window with my geraniums at very low humidity, sometimes low temps at night (as low as 50 deg F). I put it in the shower once every 7 to 10 days for about 5 minutes all winter. It's roots are just a huge ball so it is in a heavy ceramic pot with bark and charcoal tucked around the roots. I just noticed a third spike starting from a thick leafless cane. It seems to be an easy-going hardy orchid.
