My tanks have hit 84 in the summer (normally kept at 78) and I never had a problem but I know they prefer cooler water IME.

i wasnt fertilizing quite like I am now, but when I had discus, my Java Fern faded away quickly and the temp was around 85. Couldnt keep it alive. After some discus deaths I dropped the temp to 78 and the plant boomed.

Never did experiment in the 80-84 range though.

I had some in my tank at mid to high 70's under high light and it turned brown, I pulled it out and put it in a low tech low light tank and now it is green. . .Go figure
