In winter the average day temperature is 24-26 ° C, night 12-13 ° C, with a daily amplitude of 13 ° C. Because these plants meet at lower altitudes, they should adapt to slightly higher growing temperatures.

Humidity:

 The humidity should is a probable value of 75-80% for most of the year, which drops to around 65-70% in the dry season in winter. In the case of plants mounted on rootstocks, it is necessary to maintain high humidity of the air, and in the summer daily watering.

 In winter, watering of cultivated plants should be limited, but must not be allowed to stay dry for a long time. As these plants do not tolerate seperate soil around the roots, they should be repotted before it begins to decompose. Plants are best repotted when new roots begin to grow.
