Can anyone suggest good terrestrial orchids for viv use? Apart from jewels and Paphiopedilum, what else would work? Malaxis i thought might be worth a shot.

Phragmepedium bessae and its hybrids. Great looking orchid endemic to dart frog habitat

Those are some pretty big plants. And I imagine the slippers will be next to impossible to find down under.

Mexipedium and selenipedium as said are going to be very hard, if not impossible to get here in aus. Phaius are huge and i have never had luck growing them. Are there any dwarf or smaller Phrags?

Phragmepedium bessae is about as small as it gets for them. It would fit in most vivs.
