Glass orbs for pleurothallids?

I have had my orchids in the terraria for a month or so now and they have all survived. One of my L. telipogoniflora and my L. tsubotae were blooming when they arrived but immediately stopped once they came into my care. For the past 3 nights I put the glass orb with these plants sealed in a plastic grocery bag (to keep out pests like spider mites) on the porch during the cool overnight hours to achieve a substantial temperature drop and temp variation and after just 3 days they have suddenly started budding and one of the L. telipogoniflora is putting on new growth as well.
