Default Paph insigne

Last year it bloomed around this time with 4 blooms. Had it in temps of around 70f after bringing it indoors. This year I read a few articles that said it was primarily a cool grower and could withstand temps of 32f. I decided to experiment and left it outdoors until temps were around 50f and then brought it indoors into the basement where temps have never exceeded around 63f and have dropped to 52f. Humidity has been around 45%.
So it looks like I will get 4-5 blooms. The colour is maybe crisper. To be honest I don't really see a marked difference as a result of the lower temps. Maybe they will last longer?
The foliage looks terrible because it was sunburnt quite badly but the plant hardly seems affected. This is a really hardy paph.
