Planning my 60x45x90 tank

Planting is under way! I had to be sensible with plant buying which was difficult, but I think I've managed to avoid over filling it too quickly.
All the orchids are on individual mounts so that they're easy to move if they don't like their spot, but fingers crossed I've gone for more easy going, tolerant species. That was the plan, anyway...
The Tolumnia will need to move lower to accommodate the flower but my main concern was to ensure the roots dried out after misting.
This is my first time mounting orchids so please highlight any mistakes with that or with positioning. I wanted to start with the ones that like the most light (except for the Masdevallia) so I can find the right spots beneath for the other plants.
I've tried to label the image but for ease, the orchids are (so far):
Tolumnia Jairak Firm 'Orange Spread'
Vanda nana
Masdevallia decumana
Gomesa radicans
Epidendrum porpax

Currently being misted for 1 minute twice a day with the fans running after until the leaves have dried.
