I have following vines germinated from seeds few weeks ago and wondering will they survive my subtropical hot climate. Right now it is early summer and temps are around 30C, they will crawl to 40C and remain 40C for many months until monsoon. I am keeping them in full shade but still temperature will be very high. Any thoughts?

- Cobaea Scandens
- Rhodochiton atrosanguineus
- Maurandya 'Magic Dragon' (Tuberous i guess)

BTW, here is the temperature chart of my city Lahore:
