    Things I have in full sun for 2/3rds of the day:

    Schomburkia sp.
    Myrmecophilia brysiana (aka Schomburkia brysiana)
    Brassavola nodosa (see my recent post in the Cattleya pic gallery)
    Bletilla striata
    standard Cymbidium hybrids
    Den. anosmum
    Epidendrum ciliare
    Epidendrum ibaguence
    Galeandra bauerii
    Laelia anceps
    Oncidium sphacelatum
    Stlma. Kelly 'Lea'
    Vanda, strap-leaved and terete

    Things in full sun for 1/2 the day:
    Bardendrum Nanboh Pixy
    Coelogyne pandurata
    Den. aggregatum
    Den. aphrodite
    Den. Coerulea Blue (phal type)
    Nobile Den hybrids
    Dendrochilum magnum
    Grammatophyllum scriptum
    Lycaste hybrids
    Phaius tankervilla
    Ascocenda and Vascostylis hybrids

    I know most of these are repeats for you, but do note a couple of very interesting fun things:
    1. Galeandra bauerii. This is a really cool plant, and I think it would take full sun all day.
    2. Oncidium sphacelatum and Coelogyne pandurata. Both unusually high light tolerant members of species which usually will not take full sun. Both are also unusually large growers, with big showy spikes.
    3. Stlma. Kelly. I wasn't sure if a Brassavola hybrid would take the high light which Brassavola nodosa will. This one has shown zero sunburn, and a good rate of growth. My bet is that Brassavola nodosa hybrids will follow this trend, to a significant extent.

    My Laelia Purpurata Coerulea at least that's what the board thinks it is. It's in full sun from about noon to 5 when it starts getting shade from the coconut palms.
