It depends on the tropicals... say alocasia then 60. My personal general goal is 50. Something like a ficus or a marginata will be ok in upper 40s.

Although it is plant specific, “a greenhouse should maintain an ideal temperature of 75-80°F during the day and 60-70° F at night” but a thing lower than 50°F can start cause problems”

“Most will not survive at frost temp or below 40° F. “

Hope this helps

I grow tropicals and succulents and I shoot for no less than 50 degrees. They don’t need to be at higher temps at night.
