Help with Zygonisia Cynosure Culture

I just purchased a ZC "Blue birds" wonderful orchid but I am not having much luck in finding out how to grow it sucessfully! What does it need for light, temp, eyc. All i have found is that it likes more water than most and needs good air movement. I live in the Tampa area and have the majority of my orchids out in the pool cage on lattice work and hanging from posts. It gets sun from early morning until about 3 p.m. There are some shady ares available but I don't know if this baby will take our heat or not. Have lots of cats, cyms, oncidiums and vandas. Any help in steering me to a cultivation sheet for this orchid would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    The culture sheet that came with mine suggested bright light, intermediate temps and lots of water. I've had mine growing in SH culture on a south facing window shaded lightly by a deciduous tree. It bloomed nicely. I saw a more mature plant at our show yesterday in a vendor display. It was gorgeous, had four spikes!
