    Yes, provided it doesn't get too hot, or too dry.

    It depends on whether you're talking lowland or highland, and it also depends on humidity. With higher humidity, they can cope with higher temperatures, within reason. In high humidity, highland truncata is fine up to around 30-32C, lowland up to 35 - 38C. If it's dry, I wouldn't let either go much above 30C.

    fc3srx713b,
    I cannot trasmit you my experience bacause I grow truncata i terrarium because it was a young plant. This summer I will put outside only the truncata highland...
    The lowland form will stay in home in terrarium,ehehe!
    Anyway I can tell you that when I got the highland form she stayed outside from June to October with 2 hours of direct sunlight of the MORNIG!
    ok?
    Bye!

    fc3srx713b, your plants look great...I am keeping my eye out for the highland form...supposed to be hairier than the lowland...is this true with yours?
