Yes, you read that right, folks, I need some help! I've gotten myself into a little predicament, or a pickle if you will...

So I just placed my small bicalcarata outside after growing it in a little makeshift terrarium for about eight months. I moved it out for two reasons. one: because the temperatures are looking to be consistently high for the rest of the growing season, and two: it has gotten to big for the terrarium.

I put it outside about an hour ago, and when I went to check on it just now, I found that it was starting to wilt. I know this is most certainly a humidity problem, but if any of you have any advice, I'd be glad to hear it.

Is bag accumulation an option?

It might be... the area it's in gets about an hour of direct light toward the end of the day, and I'm not sure if having a bag over it in direct light will harm it.

I could, yes, I'll give that a try.

@That one plant boi, I would do it, as soon as you see the water droplets have soaked into the leaves wack it again with the mist. this is what I did with a nearly dead super dehydrated orchid I rescued and by the next day, it had made a partial recovery, and now if fully restored and growing a flower stalk. I kept misting it up every 10-20min.

Awesome! But I'm just wondering that if putting the bag over it would do any harm since the spot it's in gets about an hour of direct light later in the day?

Update: so as the day went on I've found that it started to become less wilty as is once again regaining its structure, or so it seems. So I don't really know what's going on with it.

Tips?
