    ebay is my favorite place to shop for odd ball orchids. ive got a guy here in Montana(though a 9 hour drive away) and Jeffs Flasks has all kinds of odd ball species stuff and has good quality plants.

    Masdevallia, Pleurothallis and Dracula do indeed like it cool or at most intermediate. If you have one doing well warm then that is unusual. They also need good air circulation.

    For small orchids that give a good display... If you can get it rasied off the ground for the pendulous inflorescences, why not try the amazing Paphinia herrerae? Or Ludisia discolor (terrestrial), and species of Bulbophyllum, Cirrhopetalum and some Maxillaria ought to do well, depending on light levels.

    i have Ludisia and plan on using it. i thought i had Bulbophylum odoratissimum but doesnt seem to have near as many flowers and they dont really have a scent so im not sure what i have now.

    Gotta go with what Rob stated. Masdevallias like intermediate at the warmest, and need good air circulation. I would also suggest lowland bulbos and cirrs. B. fascinator is very forgiving and has great blooms. Might want to try it.

    Masdevallias that do well in warm temps, Masdevallias floribunda, livingstoneana, and zahlbruckneri are a few that I know of.

    I have Encyclia polybulbon cuttings available if your interrested. It's a rambler, with fall and spring blooms, and will cover your back wall in a couple years.
