Kilmiquix, really good idea of growing your orchids there! If they grow well, don't lose their flowers and don't change their colour it means everything is good with them and they like conditions you provide them. So don't worry also about this air movement!

Orchid growing area under mango tree... Male

I have a mango tree with a bunch of orchids growing right on the branches and trunk. I kind of regret having chose that tree, first because it creates too much shade, I thin out the canopy every year to let some light down. And secondly the mangos tend to do quite a bit of damage when they start falling.
Here in CR I've seen some people with Sobralias planted in the ground in full sun. I personally have Catasetum maculatum, Encyclia cordigera, Brassavola nodosa, Epidendrum umbelliferum and "lluvia de oro" Onciduim sp. growing in nearly full sun.
