Here in the Los Angeles area I didn't have much success with D. lindenii outside. D. funalis grew great though... until I gave it too much sun. Have you tried funalis?

Thanks for sharing this!

How hot did it get at your place? In my area it got 114F! Any of my orchids that got some direct sun were burnt... most survived though. A few did not.
