    D.burmannii heat tolerance

    I'm gonna be getting some seeds of these soon and was wondering if they can tolerate temps of 90-100F during the day if they are kept wet and at about 70% humidity.


    Thanks.

    I've read that several growers have had success growing them in lower-mid 90s, but 100s may be pushing it...just barely.
    But as long as humidity is high and around that range, you will obviously have a better chance than if humidity were low in that temperature range.

    I'd try aiming for upper 80s to be safest, but if that isn't feasible, you can at least give it a shot, and then report to us whether or not it worked...

    this is great to know! You have the most incredible pictures and plants! Do you own a small nursery of sorts, I'm assuming?

    I am a CP hobbyist just like most of you. Always dream to have a nursery. However, still need some money and time to make it come true.

    Exo I believe the plant should be okay at 90F or a bit higher because I grow my D. burmannii outdoors full sun no shade and its really happy. 100F all the time? I don't have the experience to comment on that temp. Good luck!!! let us know how it goes.

    Mine grow fine in 75-85F with only 40% humidity.
