Thanks ALOT for starting this project for 2012 Camille! I had wondered if this was going to be happening this spring... I promise I will look into it when I get a chance probably next weekend. Merci encore.

I was going to recommend Phrag besseae, but apparently its kind of pricey, and can be a bit large. So, I'll try and get the ball rolling by suggesting some smaller plants

Ceratostylis philippinensis, $18.00 at Andy's Orchids,
IOSPE PHOTOS

Leptotes bicolor, $24.00 at Andy's

Edit: Removing Neo falcata, as it was previously used.

Inserting:
Seidenfadenia (Aerides) mitrata, $26, Andy's
IOSPE PHOTOS

Sophronitis acuensis or cernua, both at Andy's

I initially wanted to suggest Dendrobium peguanum, but I can't find it on any of the Canadian vendors' sites.

IOSPE PHOTOS

Two vendors in the US:
Dendrobium peguanum x sib: Orchids By Hausermann
Andy's Orchids - Orchid Species - Dendrobium - peguanum

One in the EU:
Dendrobium peguanum - Orchideen der Schwerter Orchideenzucht

I will keep looking!

We'll keep it in mind, I'm still waiting for a canadian to give me some recommendations of reputable vendors to add to the list.

It's kind of a shame Lycaste aromatica is juuust a touch too big for this project (12-16" leaves), because it's a great plant.

Purchase:
USA:
Lycaste aromatica at Santa Barbara Orchid Estate
Lycaste aromatica

EU
Nardotto e Capello Shop
Elsner Orchideen | Lycaste aromatica - Details
Lycaste aromatica plants "waiting for stock"

Canada - listed at Clouds for $35.

I think that it could be up for discussion. Lycaste aromatica did pop up in several other projects, but I don't remember if it ever got 'approved' to go to poll. Personally I don't have an issue with the height. It deciduous in the winter, which is when space is most at a premium under the lights.

One of its many charms. Watch out for the vicious thorns on top of the PBs after the leaves are shed though.
