    Perhaps, but don't bet on it. There are members of the Dendrobium Alliance, for example, that require cool to chilly temperatures and damp conditions year-round. There are other members that like it hot an wet during active growth but chilly and dry during dormancy.

    That said, yours looks like it might be a member of the Cattleya Alliance. While there are those catts which require highland conditions, most are warm growers with a some being more intermediate temperature.

    During the winter, my house temps got down to 57║F in the room where this terrarium is. Though that terrarium is not heated, I'm sure it was at least a couple degrees warmer than the house. I regret not taking the temps in there. At best guess, it was probably really close to 60║F in there for most of the winter.

    It appears the leaves are thick enough to be blasted with sun. I'd try more light and bi-weekly feeding.
