Is this in your greenhouse ?

they are beautiful TT, orchids are one of my favorites. and no, would be frozen in my sorry excuse for a greenhouse, i grow these in the bathroom, they really seem to like it in there, all though i think it depends on how well ventilated your bathroom is - as to weather they work well in there, mine is very well ventilated, and does'nt get too much direct sun, i have never had a problem with condesation in this bathroom, which i think is when you can struggle.

I bet they love all that humidity, just like in a rainforest :)

yes i think that is the key tasteyg, they like a bit of a ballence really humidity but good ventilation, which does'nt make much sense does it, condensation is something they don't like, don't like to be sitting in water, or have water in the base of the leaves where they meet the stem, but they do like moisture around and on the air roots. sounds tricky but if you hit the right spot they are virtually maintence free, i hardly ever water this, it just takes steem out of air, via it's air roots every time someone has a bath, which is every day. so really does'nt need any watering unless very hot weather, and we have had cold baths or showers lol. i do stick one of thougs little slow drip feeders into it every so often, and wipe dust off the leaves, that is it really. easy peasy.
