I have never been in Mediterranean wheather but here in the Dominican
Republic climbing Philodendrons are everywhere, we have a tropical
wheather and the places I have seen them in wild are just shaded with
lots of big trees, not too much rainy periods.

I don't know how to calculate the humidity levels.
