    Perhaps this sounds confusing,
    but I don't think that putting it outside into the sun was said to be a bad thing. Just that acclimating it by finding a semi-shady/semi-sunny spot (out of the mid-day hottest sunlight of the day) for a couple weeks, slowly acclimating it to more sunlight would make for an easier transition for the plant.

    Also,as another thought, if it is placed amongst other garden plants, (and watering the garden plants and the nearby soil down with a hose), that will help provide the dappled sunlight AND temporarily bring up the humidity a bit for your plant. (Extra misting is also helpful, however also temporary.) Some people's plants don't have humidity issues it seems, and their plants do fine apparently, so your results will likely vary.

    I don't know if others will agree, but I would consider putting it back outside, especially if your other Neps are doing fine with it. Just be sure to place this one in a bit more semi-shaded spot, and perhaps water the surrounding plants and soil to boost the humidity in the area. Then give it time.

    The "burn" has already occurred, and the plant will likely take time to recover anyway. It may even show more signs of distress, however from the sound of it, it will recover in time.
    When making changes, make them slow and gentle. In the meantime watch the response you get from the plants. They are telling you what they think of the change. But even beneficial change should take place slowly and gently, as plants need time to acclimate and adjust to things, even good things!
    [Change is stressful on plants. Small/gentle changes lessen the stress. Large/quick changes increase it.] IMO, that is all you are experiencing with this plant. I learned this lesson repeatedly, as I have "improved" my lighting and growing conditions over the years, and experienced firsthand that even an improvement can harm a plant!
    I assume I will be going thru that again too, as we never know what change will be too much, but at least we can try to minimize the stress.

    Again,
    Take care and good luck!
    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    I would, I'm just going away for a while, so all are coming in.
    Once these come back outside, I will place them with my outside orchids(semi-shady spot on porch).

    Joel, from NepsAroundtheHouse just flings them outside and lets them fend for themselves, and they usually pull through, just as long as you know the spot would actually work for neps. Daytime temps are definitely a bother this time of year for me.

    well if you were going to be going away for awhile, why did you place them outside to begin with, only to bring them right back in?

    I agree with GrowinOld, the damage has been done from the sun and climate change, if you werent leaving, i would leave it outside.

    I definitely was not trying to say bring it back it, or that growing it in full sun was bad, i was indeed saying what growinold say, acclimatizing is needed.

    Nor I. I had better results leaving mine indoors year round but definately an option for some. Given time, it should acclaimate and do fine.

    They were out since sometime in early-mid June. I bring them in every time I go away for more than a day, and they have taken to that just fine.

    Moving them around frequently is an easy way to stress the plants, find a good home for them where they can stay for a good while without moving, and leave em be....for example, my plants are in the greenhouse during the warm weather between May and October, and during the cold months, in my garage under lights.
    also the bringing them in if its colder than 60 is not necessary, my plants regularly take it down to the mid to low 40s at night with no trouble, infact its almost ideal for most highland plants. they have even taken it down to 35 without a problem, though i dont recommend doing that obviously Lol.
    Generally, the safe range for highlanders is anywhere between 90 and 40 degrees
    i try not to let it get much over 90 degrees in the greenhouse, or below 40. i dont use a heater or a cooler so its a bit difficult, but evaporative cooling is the most amazing thing since...well anything lol.

    I grow outside only because I live in an upstairs bedroom in California in the middle of the summer, so my HL don't get the lower temps they would like at night. Full sun is tolerated, but I don't think it's ideal for them. More on the shady side with 2-3 hours of direct sun is good followed by shade the rest of the day. We all have that spot lol.

    Andy's Sang is loving it out there!
