    D. prolifera - what's the highest temp you have it growing in?

    I can keep it in lower light levels but temperatures would always be between 77F-90F year round. Anyone who has it growing well for you throughout summer, please share your experiences.

    What is your media?

    Do you have it in a terrarium? Or is it in a greenhouse?

    How much light does it get?

    TIA!

    Mine are doing very well at room temp (21 C), at the sliding windows, southern exposure, with a Grolite near them. I wish I had update pictures, but they did flower for me and produced plantlets.











    Bottom line: Mine are being kept cooler and drier than yours. Not sure if that means anything or not, though.

    Jimscott, your summer is 21C?

    I do read that they are quite tolerant of lower humidity.

    cool conditions + low humidity = happy plants

    How about...

    hot conditions + high humidity = ?

    I wish this was my experience. I have yet to be able to make them happy in a lower humidity environment ...
