General care for a Masd Tuakau Candy X veitchiana orchid, I was told it would like a bright NW sky lit area in my shower, also it is a very immature plant, only in a 2" pot, when should I expect its first blooms?

Your Masdevallia veitchiana orchid likes cool conditions; 50F at night and 60F during the day. In such a small pot, your plant is very young, so don't expect blooms for about 3 years. As for all orchids, keep the soil moist but not soggy wet, and provide bright light (but not direct sunlight). Since your plant is in a bathroom it should get the humidity it requires without additional misting.

Enjoy your new plant!
