Default Watering Odontobrassia Kenneth Bivin

I bought a Odontobrassia Kenneth Bivin 'Santa Barbara' about 3 weeks ago that had already bloomed.

I repotted in the same plastic pot with Repotme Imperial mix (medium/small Monterey pine bark and sponge rock).
She sits on a shelf in front of a west/northwest window and gets sunlight, filtered through an open blind, the last 2 hours of the day.
I water 2 times a week.
In reading through some other posts, it seems I should be watering more often.
Do I water more often?
Add some sphagnum on top.
Do nothing and quit fussing.

Water more often. You could water this every two days and that wouldn't be too much, especially in summer. These like to stay on the damp side - but still like the fresh air of an open mix.
Orchids teach patience!
