Sorry can't help much with the shadehouse - unfortunately don't live in Florida :( I think you would get more responses on the forum side as Charm mentioned. Also, an FYI in case you didn't know - All caps is generally used to indicate that you are screaming, it's also a little hard to read.
Best,

In Florida where for 99% of the year the climate is ideal for orchids, you don't want to spend too much on heating. On the few nights when those cold northwesterlies do bring the temperature right down your best option is probably a small paraffin heater. They are not ideal for long term heating as they produce a lot of CO2 and water vapor but where you are I would go for one.
