What kind of temperature range do people give this genus?
Intermediate to cool, was all I found looking through the species culture section of OrchidWiz. D. hirsutissima's elevation was given as 900-1800 meters. D. pilosissima has a Baker's sheet, temps 75-80 high, and 58-62 lows.
I grow them both in the 56F minimum and in the 50F minimum greenhouses. Daytime highs rarely exceed 80F.
I grow mine with lows of 40-45 and high of 80. They are slow growing but bloom every year.
