Default Heat tolerance of Paph. Henriette Fujiwara

I was out of town Thursday the 9th through yesterday, Sunday the 12th. We had our first really hot spell this weekend, with temperatures in the 112-114 F / 44-46C range, 85 F / 30C at night. I had many plants outside on my patio, but moved them in before leaving.

Well, except for a couple I forgot. Paph. Henriette Fujiwara was on a bottom shelf in bright shade. It is in semihydroponics and I watered it before I left. It looks completely fine with an undamaged new growth emerging. I will report back in a few days.

I also left a seedling Enanthleya (Epicattleya) Magic Wand out in the shade, and it is likewise undamaged. But that doesn't surprise me.

Well, Paph Henrietta Fujiwara is a primary hybrid of two warm-growing Paphs (primulinum x haynaldianum). So I'm not surprised at the heat tolerance if shaded (so leaf temperatures didn't go above ambient)... it probably didn't appreciate the low humidity but put up with it, only a few days. Orchids are tough...

I had my plants out for a while in early spring-- but in the 90s to 100s we are getting now in June, I would not. Do you think it was species or the micro environment that allowed you to jump the shark so to speak?

It was in full shade, had plenty of water and is a primary hybrid of two warm growers. I think if the S/H reservoir went dry it would have died. A Ruellia elegans right next to it didn't go dry but it was crisp dead. I thought it would handle heat but apparently not.

Interesting that the Ruelia toasted even in shade... it is supposedly a high-light tropical plant. Just goes to show... orchids have a full bag of survival tricks that other plants don't.
