The reference are only for reference, the environment
maybe more constant than some place. Just as somewhere
will over 40 degree C at day in summer, but also will
cool down to 10 C at night in summer.

In the reference, they are in a well controlled
constant environment.
There is no big difference in temperature between day
and night.
And the air temperature is not far from the soil

Most the reference are in the way that the temperature
should be referenced as the temperature which bulb
center really suffer to.

Planting in the ground are not as the environment
while potting.
The temperature of the soil in the pot is always
changing with the environment do.
But the deeper the planting depth in the ground, the
less temperature changes will be reflecting rapidly.
While the temperature daylily change over 40 at day or
below 10 C at night, the soil below the 1cm soil will
still in a mild situation on the ground.
The soil is a bad heat conductor.

The reference only shows that the bulb center should
remain in the range which could have a good
inflorenscence formation.
And this range of environment won't affect the part
which are underground for the life cycle and feed the
