David, the first one looks like a small division of Dendrobium kingianum (or one of its hybrids). It looks like it may have a keikei (baby plant), starting from the top of one of the canes. The second one is a hybrid Phalaenopsis, easy growers in an average warm household, with bright indirect light (much like African violet conditions as far as light is concerned)
Southwestern Nova Scotia,
Zone 6B or above , depending on the year.

Promenea xanthina, from Brazil, grows on the side of trees in the cool mountains north of Rio de Janeiro. I've had this for many years, it lives in my cool pleione house where I keep the autumn flowering pleiones. The rootbal is so congested I just drop it on every three years or so. Doesn't seem to mind. It's been flowering since the beginning of June, but this is its final hurrah for this season.

Habenaria carnea in my living room. Never below 18C, but with a good dry rest in winter after flowering.

Only just seen your post Pauli, what a beautiful plant! Have to look out for one. How old is it- as in does it flower every year for you, or is it new?

It is easily grown - provided it gets its rest in winter. I have grown it for several years and the group was grown from one plant by bulb division. I plant it in a mixture of about one third normal substrat as for other tropical orchids and two thirds mineral "pebbles" (lava rock, seramis, lime gravel...). I repot every year so that it does not get too congested.
