Any chance that it got a bit cold, with water sitting on the leaves?

Yes thatís possible. We are in TX and were impacted by the winter storm (we lost power for days with intermittent heat) I ended up building a heating tent for the orchids with candles LOL to help keep them safe.

I did have a mini humidifier in the previous room it was in that was semi close to it, so itís possible it got some precipitation from that on its leaves. I had already moved it to its new location though, but perhaps it was too close to that midi humidifer?

I would think itís new location is more advantageous better light etc. I also have ditched the mini humidifiers.

I doubt it will spread, just keep leaves dry, normal warmth. And hope for no more snowstorms. You did well in your protection scheme! It could have been miuch, much worse without your attention.
