New orchid growths

Yesterday I was having a look at my Oncidium Sharry Baby 'Sweet Fragrance' AM/AOS (Sorry, I just like typing its name out in full) and noticed that the new growth that was on the plant when I bought it had finally decided it was not going to grow again. Boo. Well then I noticed two new growths. So I watered it and fertilized it. It's also sending out new roots.

Later that afternoon I was checking in on my Cymbidium NOID to see if it needed water or anything and found that it too was growing. Yay! I see two so far. This year it will live outside for the summer until the nights get cold in the fall and spikes are developing.

    Hi Andrew, I am new to orchids, bought 2 last year. I also saw new growth on them. I live in the mountains of western NC. It stays pretty cool here. Between 40 & 60 degrees lately. Can I put them out for the summer also? Also wonder if I should repot them?
