    Can it be grown intermediate or cool? Orchidspecies says hot to cool growing, Andy lists it as a warm grower...
    Thanks.

    Baker culture sheet in Orchidwiz indicates that it can grow from lowlands to as high as 1200 m in Borneo, Java, Sumatra, Malaya. From that info I would suspect that while it could take a bit cool (or intermediate) if acclimated, most of its range is lower, and pretty tropical. If it were my plant, I'd likely keep it in the greenhouse. (warm/intermediate) But then, my situation is binary... back yard or greenhouse. No fine gradations.

    Thanks! That's why I thought about it. I have a small growing area in my greenhouse with heat mats but this particular species just gets too big :(
