According to this weather station data for Nago it can go down to mid 40s F in Jan/Feb.
(source: Hortus orchis - Sedirea japonica)

But its natural habitat extends far north, it's also found in North Korea and Sapporo, where it even snows. That is why its re-classification into phalaenopsis was confusing, as no phal would ever withstand these conditions.

I'm not starting a flame war, I also don't want people taking away incorrect data. The climate data from Hortus states, "temperatures are calculated for an altitude of 1000 m / 3300 ft". There is no place on Okinawa Island with an elevation of 1000m.

I'll leave everyone to do their own due diligence. I'm done.
