i dont think i would start with hybrids and multi-genera crosses like blc etc....
my very first orchid was a cymbidium, which i have now expanded on to have 50 or so. these are easy enough. one thing i have found is that certain alliances and generas suit different people. for me, a few laelia and catt species, cymbidiums, and oncidium alliance including gomeza, maclelanara etc....suit me best.
the key is to try a few of each alliance then decide what suits your growing style and conditions best.
but the no.1 starter plant in my opinion, is laelia anceps, and any anceps varients.
it looks pretty, is quick to flower, makes a good cut flower too, long stems. and can tolerate any amount of light from almost direct sunlight, to 40% sunlight. it is also a cool growing laelia too which makes it a good starter, as most novices dont have greenhouses, like me and ive been waiting 4 years!
