It would be nice if the temperature chart have data of light intensity and humdity and precipitation. That would give us more information on how to grow it.

I have the complete data from the Paph species book by Braems, Baker and Baker. Attached is the information from the book. Usually, these books are very good if you follow as closely as possible. However, since Paph parishii is difficult to grow, I just want to hear from growers who have personal experience and also some pointers (such as the smallest pot possible which is not common for Paph) not written in the book.

thanks...it is very similar to the Paph book I have (day time high temp) and the rainfal amount. For this species, in the winter time the temp in the night is cool/cold (with a huge diurnal difference, 15C), I think that's the challenge for me, will see if I can grow with my spring blooming Dendrobium species that require the cool winter rest.
night temperatures there 20C in January
here in the north 5-10 degrees lower
