It looks great and I was so excited to see the first pink sign of bloom. Should I still keep up the recommended cold/dark regimen? Or place it with other plants now. Thank you.

I would wait until several flowers open before placing back into a different light schedule. This change will trigger the growth phase again so it will stop producing blooms after being in this new schedule. Just wait until you have the number of blooms that seems good, and then bring it back out of the dark cycles.
