85 degrees? That's cool! :-))
I think the difference here is that you have heaps more blooms to choose 
from. When I had this problem, I had only 1 or 2 blooms to work with, 
the temp was 90's plus, no humidity, just dry and windy. The stigmatic 
lip was definitely dry and the saliva method made all the difference.
