Default Coelogyne cristata - How cold is to cold?

My two Coelogyne cristata are growing on th eglassed balcony (no heating) and seem to enjoy temps of around 45 - 48F during the night and 48 - 52F during the day. Duringthe last two nights, Temps have fallen down to 37F an dthis seems to be the case for the next 1 or two weeks. Would that be to cold for them? Or should I bring them in the appartment (average temp: 70F)? Will thi schange be to drastic for them? would this affect the blooming? (2 spikes starting to grow - approx. 2 inches long each)

Ramón, My cristata is in a similar situation - on an unheated glass enclosed side porch. I wouldn't bring them in - especially since you're getting flowers!

When I got mine, I found this article which states:
Quote:
Winter days average 51-55°F (11-13°C), and nights average 36-39°F (2-4°C)
and the lowest low can be well below that 2-4°C....

Here's the link to it:
Cool-Growing Coelogyne Culture

I've found it to be a good reference.
