@Chef, if you are growing outdoors, a heli would not do very well. I grow mine in an old closet which I have modified into a cool, humid grow chamber. Humidity is around 98% in there now days and temps never go over 72. This hybrid is easy, but still I wouldn't expose it to temps over 85. If you're wanting something new to try, I'd try a Darlingtonia. I think people overestimate how difficult cobras are, I grow mine right with my sarrs and it does well. It even flowered this spring. Just make sure to keep the roots cool, and if you do their top growth can handle 100+ temps!

Thanks for the info.
I've thought of Cobra Lilies, but I'm gone during the hottest part of the day, so the roots would heat up. So no go on them.
Thanks again.
