    My greenhouse gets to 100, and my capensis, binata in all forms, filiformis, scorpiodies and everything else do very well. Drosera don't to this layman seem to mind radical temperature drops as much as Lowland Neps. Even my Sars are munching out so much on bugs that some of the tubes smell rather "off".
    My Mexican Pings also seem to do well, especially if I put them into shadier areas, and my Tillandsias just want to grow and grow.

    I can see why orchid types cool their greenhouse, though. My live, but don't really thrive with these temps. My Highland Neps are a sight to behold, with magnificint growth.

    Is there any chance that I could keep a dew outside in Arizona? The temp today got to 106, and the humidity is very low. I've been thinking about pygmies.

    Sundewd,

    Although the pygmy species are tough, they do need at least 30% humidity. Two Arizona growers are friends of mine, and they have impressed me with how dry Arizona really is! Hopefully next season I can provide you with some gemmae for experimenting with, and maybe you will be able to add to our knowledge of just how much these plants can take.
