There is also an area along the path leading to this area where I sit my orchids on a shelf, it is on the N/W side of the house so it gets the afternoon sun. Are there any other orchids I would be able to grow outside?
Hey welcome. I am from Tasmania as well although I now live in Geelong.

What part of Tassie do you live in?

I would use the same for them. 50% shade cloth with the Sarc's being at the darker end of your growing area. 50% should be fine I think.
