Personally I dig up mine mostly because I want to look at the tubers . However, for me it also helps quite a bit with storage. If I leave them outside in their pots, I risk something bad happening to them, from falling or something else. If I move the pot inside, I'm very sure that it will be filled with ants by the time they wake up. So I dig up the tubers and store them in plastic cups with moss.

On another topic, my Habenaria medusa are also waking up! (Although no blooms yet)

Ok I don't know what to put here...

[QUOTE=SaraJean;938994]I wouldnít worry too much about the heat. Mine fly though the summer when the temps start soaring into the upper 90ís and 100ís (and stay there lol). As long as they are damp, theyíre happy and grow rapidly. Both of mine have doubled in height from the previous year and produced several tubers. Plus, itís not like they take up any space during dormancy or really need a cool down. Iíve just been storing the tubers in their pots in the kitchen.
Dooooo ittttttttt

Oh definitely do it! I don't think that summer heat is a problem... these are warm-growers. And have some of the most intriguing flowers in orchid-dom.
