Unless the foliage is wet, the lack of air movement is of no consequence.

I prefer an aquarium with a glass top to plastic bags for propagating and rescuing various kinds of plants. If the plastic bag adheres to a soft leaf, like a Paph or hibiscus, and I don't notice it, rot often starts. I have an aquarium set up with plastic light grating in the bottom for this. Of course when space is tight this would not be ideal.

Yup, what ES says. Plus better air flow. You need one Camille. Start thrift shopping or get a $20 cheapie.

Maybe depends on temperature too. High humidity and still-air at certain temperature can start growing unwanted things maybe.

Although ----- I don't know how air-movement in high humidity environments cuts down on (suppresses) the growth of unwanted things - mildew, mold, fungi etc. Or at least that is a correct/incorrect assumption. Assuming it is correct. A nice topic.

In any case ----- temperature could be a factor. As in condensation etc. So I do agree that if leaves/stem etc remain dry enough, then ok. But some air movement is nice for other parts of the orchid too.
