    That looks like textbook environment shock to me. Give them some time to get used to the higher heat in the greenhouse, and they should be OK. The little tear at the base of that one leaf is a bit concerning, though.

    It may die if it loses all of its leaves, but the second one looks like it will be Ok, so I wouldn't worry until it starts actually dropping off. This said, I have rescued orchids from just the pseudobulb so you might be alright even if you do lose the second leaf.
