Default Dry Growing Orchids

I'm looking to put together a planting of orchids that grow well in drier conditions, with low humidity. I know of a few epidendendrum and eulophia that will work well, and I have an Oeceoclades roseovariagata. I was wondering if any of you know some other orchids that would do well in drier conditions.

You might want to look at encyclias, laelia anceps and tolumnia. These seem to like dry conditions in my collection but I do live in Florida so we have fairly high humidity.

I just read about a nice xerophytic epidendrum. I'll keep researching tonight and see what I can find.
