I thought they were a cooler grower? Like highs of mid eighties? Wait for someone with REAL expertise. A buddy wanted to give me one a ways back, but after he described it, figured I'd have to keep it in the house year around so declined. I fried a couple of orchids last summer that were "cooler" growers (mid-eighties max temp).

Ha! Exactly. Searching for the answer you Want to hear when you don't get the answer you desire the first go-round. That one's bitten me more times than I care to think of.

You could always try the Den macrophyllum. That one seems to do well with my hot, steamy temps and is about the same size of orchid with similarly shaped bloom (and a nice n hairy back too, lol)

I like that one too but it is not as... nasty, for lack of a better word...i am always looking for flowers that make me almost recoil or first react by being startled...its weird, but so are orchids LOL

For Den. finesterrae... give it a shot... I have one that is growing slowwwwly. Had it the GH for the humidity, didn't do much. Moved it outside, maybe better but not sure I'll live long enough to see it bloom. I saw huge ones in Papua New Guinea, and just love the hairyness of them. They do grow at higher elevations in PNG, so heat may or may not be an issue. They do seem to love humidity (in PNG, higher elevations are cold and damp, lower elevations are hot and damp, damp is the common denominator, I didn't dry out until reaching Sydney on the way home) But be daring... orchids are pretty adaptable.

Have you tried Bulbophyllums? Some of the ones that attract beetles and flies as pollinators can be rather... interesting. Many of them like warmer conditions.
