    The lowest temperatures this one gets is around 60, even in winter. It is growing with my vandas and was taking full sun most of the day...it barely hung under the overhang and the sun gets very strong here in the fall. I would say it got watered twice a day during the hottest part of the summer. And as I said in an earlier post, i've not only changed my fertilizer but I was adding honey into my sprays and watering. I have a couple pieces of a brassavola cross I was mixing really strong levels of fertilizer and honey for and I was dumping it on this one once in awhile too. I have optimum sunlight and heat here so I can push the fertilizer a little more than someone growing in a window sill. This summer was sort of a test run on how much they could handle...which is also why some have burns. I need to update the pictures, the flowers are opening very fast.
