Yeah they make it sound like neos need this or want that and Ive come to find out its just not written in stone, they are very adaptable. During the winter the tank can sometimes get as low as 74 at night. Summer is less fluctuation. Although the temps drop from what they are during the day it appears that is enough for them as long as it varies even if it stays on the warm/hot side? I dont claim to be an expert, just putting it out there that it works for me.
I dont have them traditionally potted though, as the humidity would be too high and possibly rot them. As mentioned with the Aerangis everything is mounted or in plastic pots with minimal media in a tank that hot and humid. I also have a Microsaccus grifithii, Dendrobium jenkinsii, and an Angreacum distichum in that same tank right now. (The dend does need a dry/cool winter to bloom so I take that one out for a few months)
