    " IF THIS WERE MY ORCHID, I would bring it inside , put it in a humidity tray, and put it in the window you mentioned."

    A whole bunch of us Texans here!!

    I agree- indoors would be best, or outdoors in the shade if you prefer.Be real careful using fertilizer on an ailing plant and make sure you flush the pot with water well at the next watering so salts don't build up and damage the roots.
    This is my first year of hanging plants outdoors for the summer and it really is a learning experience. The only plants that are in morning sun are my vanda and a couple of mature catts. The vanda is rewarding me by starting a spike.

    If it were me,I would move it into the shade with some sun. If your were to change the growing conditions to much,you risk blasting those buds. Just my opinion, Take Care Rich
