Default Cold tolerance of Oncidium Sharry Baby

I live in Canada & just started growing orchids in my unheated
sunroom. The winter temperature dips to about 50 deg F. So far I
have just started with some cool growers such as zygo's & cymbidiums.
I have been reading with fascination about Sharry Baby and wonder if
my environment can allow me to have one ...

I run two temperatures in my greenhouse-warm and cool. For years I ran the cool
house at 48F at night, and 55F in the day; for the past two years I have run
the house at 45F and 55F, and have seen no difference for the plants in this
house-Onc Sharry Baby is one of the onc in this house.
