    That's a really nice cross you've got there. Yes, on well grown plants, the spikes will often branch. Nice work.

    BTW, the genus name on your tag is misspelled... it's Vuylstekeara, abbreviated Vuyl.

    Speaking of Vuylstekeara, do you think its possible for me to grow them on the roof? Under shade of course, but temp could go real high on summer so I'm planning to get one this autumn to give it time to acclimatize. Has anyone grown this plant under extreme condition?

    Thanks in advance,
    Tanya

    Tag is spelled fine.I,m the problem.
    Fast mind but slow fat fingers
    I was only wondering if the side spikes could be a side effect of using Superthrive.I only use a drop or 2 per gallon(when i remember).

    I know from experience that Vuyls do not take high light very well.Mine turned completely red , i mean blood red , including the PB,s when i forgot to put it back in the mini-greenhouse after watering.It was a moderately cloudy day & i nearly had heart failure when i saw the plant.It recovered over a number of months.
    30c is about the hottest the plant has taken & that was only for a day or 2.40c sounds more like you will have a Vuyl stir fry.
    With pretty strong air movement i suppose they might survive but thrive

    Oh my...that's very disappointing. Oh well, maybe I should go and try my luck with the lottery. If I win the jackpot, then I could afford to keep the aircon on 24/7 all summer . LOL

    Thanks for the info Uncasteeb, I appreciate it.
