    Default Maxillaria Picta

    I have read books and Googled with out finding a definitive answer.

    Is Maxillaria Picta a cool growing orchid? Can I put it outside with my Masedevallia? Nights are around 40 degrees,

    I googled it and all I could find is "cool to warm growing",that's about as vague as you can get. My Maxillaria tenuifolia has stayed outside in temps of upper 40's with no problem, low 40's you may lose some leaves, but just a guess. good luck

    It can take cool. It is a fairly temperature tolerant Maxillaria, preferring cool. I would not let it get lower than 40.
