Default Will Aliceara Hilo Ablaze 'Hilo Gold' grow in an Alabama windowsill???

Hello all! I recently went to an orchid show near my home in Birmingham. Since then, I have the bug again. My phals bloom well every year with little effort and maintenance. Well after researching and shopping, I found a few orchids and bought them. One is Aliceara Hilo Ablaze 'Hilo Gold'. I really hope this orchid can grow along with my Phals. Of course I realize this orchid may need more care, possibly different conditions, but for now, my windowsill is my only "grow area". My orchid sits in an east facing window. It is planted in what looks like a typical orchid mix of large bark, some moss and perlite. We keep our house in the low 70s, and since the window is old and uninsulated, the temp probably fluctuates some. It gets a little morning sun. The humidity here in Alabama seems mid to high, even in the house depending on the time of year. I have read a lot of different info on the Aliceara, including it's everchanging name, so what I'm wondering is will it do well and flower in these conditions? My Phals come back every year and seem to have settled in to our environment inside the house. Any input would be appreciated and I hope everyone is well! Thank you!

See my comments on the Zygo. This is another one that can grow cool like the Zygo, and also wants to stay damp. As for the names, don't change tags... it's still an Oncidium tribe intergeneric. They all grow pretty much the same - don't want to dry out.
