I am growing Calopogon tuberosus, Sprianthes cernua Chadds Ford, and
Ophiopogon glossoides outside in my carnivorous plant bed. Inside I'm
growing Epidendrum radicans and Ludisia discolor.  And you're right, many
terrestrial orchids are geophytes!

Last week I found a Spiranthes blooming in my prairie bed.  It's probably
cernua but I'm baffled how & why it's growing *there*. Needless to say I
was over the moon with its lemony-vanilla-y scent.  :-)
