This graceful species Aerides is growing well for us without heat, just in our greenhouse. Our winter low temperatures have been down to 2 degrees, and the plants look great. As this is the first time we have raised them, I can't predict time to flowering. However from what I have observed in flowering plants elsewhere, I expect them to flower in the next 18 months. They generally flower in the warmer months.
