    I have had some trouble with my Guarianthes getting healthy root growth. The new roots begin to grow but seem to stop and then die back. Some new growths mature but others stop developing and remain stunted. I think it is the result of over-misting to correct lower humidity or in some cases high temperatures. Growth is great in May and June but comes to a screeching halt as temperatures rise in July and August. Presently I have an aurantiaca, a bowringia and a guatemalensis and recently lost my skinneri. I am building a small lean-to greenhouse to help control some of these issues, and live in Bahia Kino, Sonora near the Sea of Cortez. Any suggestions for culture of this group would be greatly appreciated as it is one of my main interests (along with other native central Americans)
