Well done Leslie! For a culture comparison, I grow mine in a a GH which goes down to 43F in winter and can go above 80F in summer.
Water frequently in summer and less in winter. I have better luck with cernua than coccinea with this arrangement. The coccinea survive but I think the cernua are a bit tougher.7E2A9A25-FDFF-44B7-B927-E5B20B4760E8.jpeg7E2A9A25-FDFF-44B7-B927-E5B20B4760E8.jpeg7E2A9A25-FDFF-44B7-B927-E5B20B4760E8.jpeg5BC4357C-2677-41C9-BAB2-8EF12B623FFE.jpeg

Such a cute plant Tom... the cernua can tolerate a cooler winter as per your conditions.

I have cernua flavum that is in my warm tank (19-25C) just as happy. Hopefully the new growth blooms! The humidity is 60-85% all year.

Cute little guy! Without the blooms, kind of looks like a C. aclandiae plant.

95f... wow that’s hot. What else do you have growing in this steam room :)
All my warm (sandies, roths, kolos, phillies, lowies) and some intermediate (venies, hirsutes, villos, tigers) paph species lol.

The cool section is just inches away from the cernua :eek:, where the fairries, charlies, henries, parishes and spicers are.
