Realizing that this is lower than recommended, but I am almost tempted to try it out next winter as I am getting tired of the plant not blooming. I understand it might not survive but I have come to the point of not wanting it otherwise. Also it would be valuable to see what happens in the name of orchid culture.

While the nighttime temperatures definitely need to be low during winter rest, i'm not 100% sure on the effects of the daytime temperature. It might need to be fairly low as well. However, sticking it in the fridge for months without any light would probably be bad too.

It’s a chore but I would be moving it back and forth every day between my fridge and growing bench only 15 feet away. The daytime temp may end up being too high at 74 degrees but we will find out.
