    I haven't found this to be true, and mine get about 12 hrs/day in summer. Can't comment on the heat, as it rarely gets much above 90F here.

    Some are adapted to drier conditions (S. oreophila, S. minor var. okefenokeensis, and S. rubra ssp jonesii, if I recall correctly). You could try a higher proportion of sand/perlite, but it probably doesn't make a difference if you just water them slightly less.

    S. psittacina is adapted to wetter environments and will thrive with occasional submergings. This is to some extent true for S. purpurea also.
