Default Re: dis-mounting orchids

Ok, thanks! The candidates for moving to terraria (sooner or later, and not all the same tank) include these with their current mounts:

Pleurothallis grobyi - treefern
Pleur. leptotifolia - wood slab
Pleur. ornata - split branch, on the raw/interior side of the wood (so, not smooth bark)
Pleur. recurva - treefern
Angraecum distichum (it's still reaaallly tiny) - pressed cork
Holcoglossum nujiangense - pressed cork
Macroclinium aurorae - treefern
Ornithocephalus manabina - pressed cork
Phymatidium tillansioides - pressed cork
Trichosalpinx chamaelepanthes - treefern (this will prob. get divided like the grobyi, 'cuz it's large)
Zygostates alleniana - pressed cork
Dendrobium subuliferum - wood slab
Dendrobium cucumerinum - branch w/ natural bark
Phalaenopsis parishii - branch w/ natural bark
Centroglossa macroceras - pressed cork
Bulbophyllum exiguum - branch w/out bark
Haraella odorata - branch w/out bark
Pteroceras semiteretifolium - pressed cork
Mystacidium capense - pressed cork
Schoenorchis tixieri - branch w/out bark
Masdevallia wendlandiana - split branch
Barbosella gardneri - wood slab

I have a few other mini/compact orchids I'd like to play with in terraria, but they're at least ready-to-go in that they're bare-root or potted. (Tolumnia divisions; Leptotes bohnkiana; a couple more Bulbophyllums; Grosourdya muscosa; Oncidium cheirophorum)

It's always more than you think it is when you list them...yikes.

The pressed cork guys are from J&L Orchids, in case anyone is familiar with their mounts. The rest are from Andy's Orchids.

Anyway, I'm about to start planting one of my two larger tanks, and am quickly discovering that this is one of the hardest parts, in addition to of course being the most fun. What do I put where, aesthetically? Trying to plan, but itching to just get some stuff growing in there. The orchids will take the most consideration, though, as they of course will be harder to move later, as I intent to mount them on branches in the tank(s).
