Default Help deciding on orchids for new viv

Im looking to mount 3 or 4 orchids in my viv. Its kept humid and well lit although one of the locations I'm looking to mount is a little on the darker side compared to the rest of the tank. Any thoughts on miniatures or other orchids I could mount and where I would be able to get them?

These guys are in CT. I have ordered from them before and couldn't be more happy. I would recommend staying away from orchids that like it on the cool side. they are also vending it a coming show in NJ. Next week they are having a sale at there greenhouse. 20% off.

Here is one that I love and is doing well in my tank so far. Pleurothallis cypripedioides Luer 1975

Andy's doesn't have them on their website, but they do have plenty in stock if you ask. There are also a couple of similar pleuros (fuzzy toilet bowls) that don't have species names yet that have purple flowers.

Thanks for all the help I'm going to be ordering from Andy's Orchids tomorrow. I ended up calling them and they were extremely helpful. I'll be getting Sophronitis/ cernua, Haraella/ odorata, Aerangis/ fastuosa, Gastrochilus/ japonicus and Shoenorchis fragrans. I will post pics when they come in thanks again for all the help!
