good orchids for me

i would like to know what types of orchids like warm to hot temps, 70s consistantly, we keep our house around that or even a bit higher day and night , medium to high light( I plan on upping my lighting), and lower end humidity in winter higher end humidity in summer spring. i do have a humidifer/fan but its puts out not that much maybe 30 to 40% RH if that, but it has been better then what it was before i added it. i will be adding a humidity tray.

the orchids would also have to be minis or small, maybe 18 inches or less in size. so they could fit into a desktop space. colors or unuseal flowers/plants would also be nice.

any subjestions for types?

There are probably lots of types you can grow including Phalaenopsis, Paphiopedilum, compact Catteya, small Tropical Dendrobiums and others.

Also try things like Schoenorchis species. They are very small and a bit different. Look them up and see if you can find one or two.

Others will have suggestions here for you as well. You could try a bit of everything.
