Default tough fast growing orchid for terrarium with gecko

I need some ideas on orchids that fast growing, tolerant, can deal with the occasional traffic of a adult crested gecko. I am not so much concerned with flowers, I am looking more for foliage and habit. Possibly species that creep or viny.

Moisture- semi-moist, the gecko is watered with a spray bottle.
Light- morning exposure, supplement with compact florescent
Air flow is good, the tank has a screen top.

Hmmmm, maybe some of the jewel leafed orchids, such as Ludisia or Goodyera.

Pleurothallis dodsonii (very attractive foliage), some of the barbosellas. All can be mounted on branches. If you want a different texture: encyclia polybulbon, epidendrum porpax and sophronitella violacea come to mind. I wouldn't mind seeing pictures. I love terrariums.

A lot of Bulbophyllums are pretty fast-growing in moist warm conditions. Some of my favorites are odoratissimum, gracillimum, hirundinis, and plumatum, but there are lots of other great species. What temperature range does your tank stay in?

I stuck an extra Restrepia division in with my gecko (11 year old golden) and its all of those things; fast, tough, and tolerant.
