    Default Bulb. Elizabeth Ann Buckleberry temp tolerance

    I have been wanting one of these beauties. I have gotten tons of conflicting information from what research I have done about the plants temperature tolerance. I am fairly cool here. Could be a little warmer under the lights and I am going out in a bit to get myself a few thermometers to be sure. Nights would surely be cool. If anyone who grows these has any input, I would be very happy to hear it....I don't want to bring a baby home only for it to limp along until it dies. I feel very bad for the plants that are experimented with, so I don't want to do that.

    I have a elizabeth ann. After the initial flowering of 6 spikes, it has been dormant since. No new leaf and no new growth. I am pinning it to the fact that i repotted it straight after its bloom.

    I keep them in a 6 inch pot, kept them fairly wet. Temperature is around 27-31 celsius ambient. plant is in bright area with no direct sunlight.

    Cheers
    Vincent

    i just bought one Elizabeth Ann several months ago, sending out another bulb currently. i grew it outside 24/7, partial shed, potted with charcoal medium. (initially mounted on coconut husk but later face a lot of mold problem with coconut husk so re-pot it to the charcoal medium).
    climate here is hot and humid all year round, so no problem with low temperature. sorry can't give you specific data on the temperature and candle lights needed, but basically all the bulbo are thriving well under the tropical climate here. good luck Jason

    Thanks for the input guys! I actually found a grower with a great reputation whose is located in a very similar climate to my own who says that they are doing well in the greenhouse AND outdoors...this surprised me. So, indoors under lights and over my deep drip trays ought to be fine! I am going to go for it...Maybe I can find one at the show here next week.

    I am hoping to run into one of these at the show here next weekend. We will have to keep track of each others to see what works.
