    I guess I was just impatient. In the day since I posted that it broke 2 new roots out of the bottom leaf :-)

    I am not aware of any "shock" associated with moving plants into warmer conditions, in deep shade. Make sure they are well-watered, and all should be fine. In my greenhouse, for example, it'll be 60°F on a non-summer night, but jump up to 90° or higher when the sun comes up, and I've never had an issue. Burning from a rapid change of light levels is entirely different.

    I just moved to a new house and the only windows available are West facing. I noticed that when the sun was coming through my Phal's pot was heating up. Heck the whole room heats up! I was afraid that was going to be a bad thing for my Phal, but maybe she is basking in that warmth. I keep the AC very cool too!!! There is no solar panel on our window, but there are vertical blinds which I have been closing in the evening as the sun goes down for fear of it burning her leaves... Thanks for the info Ray!!
