wrap around porch

Can pre-finished Brazilian Cherry planks be used on as porch floor?
We used regular salt treated tongue and groove but are not satisfied with results. It has warped and is splitting at the ends.

We used Brazilian Cherry planks inside house purchased from Lumber Liquidators.We left a scrap piece outside during the winter and the only effect we see is the end where it was sawed.

Re: wrap around porch

I know it's very nice wood for indoor use.

But for exterior use? I'd think that it has to be dry and preped for outdoor, very much like teak (naturally insect resistant).

How expensive is it?
