Neither species does.

Phalaenopsis bellina prefers warm to hot conditions at all times. Phalaenopsis equestris (note spelling - autocorrect changed it to "equestrian" for me, too) can handle temps a few degree cooler (upper 60's to low 70's min), but neither receives a winter chill in nature.

The requirements for a period of reduced growing temperature is not because those plants are hybrids, it is because of the particular species on their background. Those species require it, too.

Not this kind of Phal. That advice is for the hybrids with rounded, white to pink to buff flowers. They initiate spikes in winter/spring. The star-shaped ones with very glossy light green leaves need to be warm to hot all year. They flower in summer.

I think you started two threads by mistake. I responded to the first. Ray is correct but not autocorrect.

Thanks for the heads-up on the duplicate. I merged the two threads together so that all the comments are in one place.
