@Christos can you help i need aome advice i have 2 cool orchids that have flower spikes at diffrent stages on them one is this one and the other is a globuliferum this one as you see has 2 ones the other has one large one with kika on which will produce the flowers. Im not sure if i should be moving them to an unheated room or not for winter. The room they are in is coolish but may not get cool enough for them. As it is heated for part of the day but not at night. Should i be moving them and if
