    I grow my orchids in a greenhouse but this year I placed them under some orange trees and they are doing great. When they bloom they go inside the house.

    They are not supposed to be below 50 F, but here in Tampa temp sometimes drop to the mid 30's in winter but only during short period of time (2-3 hrs).
    I have three spathoglottis in different parts of my backyard and just cover them with a plastic fixture I made when temps go below 45.

    I shall try growing spathoglottis too, we seem to share the same temperature range. I'm from the Northeast part of India. Our temp here too seldom goes below 30, but always 40plus for mere two months only during dec-Jan.
    I hope you keep a heater in the green house during winter months for the phals and dends?
