Viv Orchid Species

If you want small epiphytic orchids try to look at species like Pleurothallis, Lepanthes and Restrepia. Terrestrial forms are Macodes, Gooyera, Dossinia and Ludisia. They all stall fairly small and like medium temps and good humidity.

Two others I would add are Harella odorata (or retrocalla--both the same) and Psygmorchis pusilla. I'm also having good luck with some of the tropical Dendrobiums blooming and thriving, and I have been having good growth under high light with Slc. and Blc. miniature hybrids. However, we'll see if they bloom well or not.

Just a warning about planting the orchid. Make sure you mount it the background or somewhere hide. I had a mini orchid on the ground and my leucs stomped it to death.
