Orchids like a constant 70 degree daytime temperature with nighttime temperatures about 10 degrees cooler. If your year 'round outdoor temperatures fall within this range you can keep them outdoors. If the temps are cooler than that at any time of the year you'll want to keep your orchids indoors during the winter months. Hope this clarifies things for you.
