Hi, guys... Just have a question about cooling slippers... This may sound a bit crazy.. As I live in a tropical climate, but wish to grow parvis (in fact, I have a micranthum ), I was wondering if I could stick the plant in the fridge when the growth matures to induce blooming. I am tempted to do it as temps in Malaysia are never below 25 degrees Celsius, but I'm afraid the plant may not be able to tolerate it. But in the natural habitats of parvis, the winter temperature supposedly drops to near freezing, and the paphs are able to tolerate it and bloom. I won't put it in the fridge for 2 months straight of course..! I'm thinking of just refrigerating the paph for about 3 or 4 hours at night... Do you think this will work? Thanks...
