RH hovering in the 40%s on hot days and 80 degrees with a fairly strong breeze.

I have my Twinkle in the bathroom window...every time I take a shower, I open the plastic curtain so that the spray will hit the twinkle and the other plants in the window...it seems to love the spray.
Of course, if you shower multiple times a day...this might be overdoing it
I've had it almost three years, and it's blooms at least three times a year. I was thinking I need to repot it soon, but haven't gotten around to it.

Another testimonial to showering with a friend.

As soon as the quarantine period it's over (it's isolated from other plants) I'll move it also to a bathroom window. We never use it to shower so I turn the shower with really hot water for 10 min. HR increases from low 20 to 70% (80 at night).
If I keep the door shut it gets bellow 60% after 3 days. The problem is the risk of fungus on the walls.
