Thanks! Actually, yours will probably grow pretty fast. It doesn't require tropical warmth, but certainly appreciates it. As I recall, you got a really nice blooming.

First, welcome

Based on the size of those new growths, I have to suspect that there are some nice roots hiding in the medium. If these were my plants I'd start watering and fertilizing. I'd let...

Yes, overnight humidity typically is in the 70-80% range. But there are plenty of exceptions. And it drops into the 40-50% range during the day, sometimes lower. Dew is pretty rare... maybe not...
