Default Orchid mounting- suction cups

Has anyone used suction cups attached to the glass to hold orchids mounted on cork bark/ flats or tubes? Was wondering how well the held in the high humidity.

Haven't used them for orchids, but I have used a lot of suction cups on glass to mount internal fans. That should be a similar use, I would guess. They work great for quite a while, depending on the suction cup, but they will eventually have to be replaced, in my experience. As long as you plan for that, all should be well. Larger suction cups relative to the weight of what you are trying to hold up will last a little longer and go longer between when you have to re-attach them.
