    Ours blooms under 52% shade cloth in the greenhouse. I would do as Clint suggests and raise the light levels slowly so as not to cause a burn. The plant looks blooming sized to me.

    Cheers,

    Trust me, Fort Worth sun is much more brutal than Tampa Sun and our humidity is much lower. Bruce is right on the slow acclimation. Good luck!

    Maybe I should pull this plant out of shade.
    Thank you for your advice!
