how do i maintain a flowering spike

16 years ago

i have read previous posts relating to this topic - but I'm still confused. This is my first time to see my phalaenopsis spiking, so I'd appreciate your help here.

Okay, it's autumn here in Aust - and the temp get to 15 degree Celsius in the house.

Is it true that if I turn on a ducted heating - to warm up the house to about 23 degree celsisus - will that be the end of my flowering spike? The fact is, when winter approaches, we have to turn on the heater - or else we'll be freeze to death.

Then, I read from other posts saying that dramatic changes to temp will make the flower buds drop ....or baby orchid form instead of a flower bud.. that's where I get confuse here.
