Sharry baby help

Hi guys,
Recently got into orchids and purchased this Sharry baby. Have her in a south window as shown. Watering about once a week and sort of afraid to fertilize lol but did quarter strength last watering. Have had her about two weeks. Any suggestions or am I doing everything right?

Sharry Baby likes a lot of water. You may need to water more than once a week, especially since your potting medium is kind of coarse (I use small bark for my Oncidiums). If the new leaves come out kind of pleated or wrinkled, that means it is not getting enough water.
