FYI - they are outdoors in a plastic greenhouse all winter, November - now.
Where I live in Marin County in Northern California it goes down to 28 degrees sometimes, average winter night is about 40. This winter has been very cold and very wet, our high temp for about a month was 52.
I water the potted L anceps in winter 1x/month, mounted 2x/month.
When the temp is forecast to go below 32, I use a small space heater with a switch that goes on at 35 and off at 45. I'm not worried about temps down to 31 or a little lower, but the weather person isn't always correct. Plus, if I've watered recently, they don't like the cold. In fact, I've had some mishaps due to things getting / staying wet this winter - some flowers wilted after some rain sprayed in in a big storm, lost a whole growth and spike and two new buds on the Nittany Frost cross after watering that didn't dry out.
Next year I will probably keep things even drier.
Several AU Dens are under same conditions and love it, lots of flower spikes and buds.

I bought an anceps less than a week ago and I'm planning to put it outside.
My temps in winter are like yours (at least the mins).
How about the maxs? Here the max avg is approx 12 to 15 ºC (54 to 59 F).
I presume you're using the greenhouse to keep things dry, right?

One more question...when you got it how did make the transition to outdoors? Did you put it outside right in that moment?

BTW, lovely flowers!

I assume you mean winter temp max is 54-59 F. That wouldn't matter they can take short spells of temps in low 100s with correct humidity and light.

I just stuck them outside, no adjustment- but that was in spring or fall. If you can transition them they might appreciate that.

One thing about cold winters, they will bloom later and more slowly this way compared to controlled condition growers

Yes plastic house is to keep them dry. Wet + cold is very bad for them. Some rain spray indirect got on flower spikes and I lost them.

Yes, that's what I meant. I'm asking about the max temps because I noticed in their habitat they have cool lows in winter but intermediate maxs around 20 to 25 ºC (68 to 77 F).

So now is the time to do it, lows of 8 and max 18 ºC (46 F to 65 F) and no rain.

Yes, now is a good time to move outside, with no rain.

As to high summer day temperatures, in common with lots of plants with succulent metabolism, high summer day temperatures are tolerated pretty well so long as summer nights cool down.

Default Laelia anceps 'Mendenhall', alternate views

Got an unusual angle/look at these flowers while cleaning up this plants' old, too-mossy cork mount.

The bees and/or wasps probably see this all the time!

I thought of putting the first photo up as a quiz, name this orchid....even in a Catt forum, how many would get this right? Of course, it would be sort a trick question, so just posting it here

This shows the previously posted Nittany Frost playing nice with its new friend, Lc. Ancibarina. This past weekend I drove down to SB Orchid Estate and picked up the Ancibarina. Ancibarina is one half of the famous SB Sunset 'Showtime'; Ancibarina itself is half anceps and half C cinnabarina. Side by side, Showtime and Ancibarina don't even really look all that different.
