    May craft a grow box with some ventilation but how do you ventilate and keep high humidity?

    typically you use an ultrasonic fogger.... but heli can do well above 60% RH if you acclimate
    You wont have the big nectar spoons at that, but they grow and grow well at that

    Some even grow them on windowsills Jr

    I can assure you, at 90f you wont have a heli a month from now...

    My heterodoxa x minor didn't get the memo, it thrived outside in the heat of SC summer and has been sulking indoors through the winter.

    I have grown some outside over the summer as well, but the failure rate is definitely greater with increased temps...
    Hybrid vigor must also be considered as well as a multitude of other variables,

    But I stand by my advice, a new grower with a heli in a 90f terrarium = dead heli

    My intent was to point toward a hardy, heat tolerant Heli that is good for beginners, not to discount your advice. I am sure that my experience reflects more on the plant than on me.
