Default Unidentifed Father's Day Gifts

My daughter & family gifted me 6 orchids,(from Australia)' for Father's day. They came in a cole slaw container, with no air, and were in pretty poor condition. I potted them in Bark mix, and they just "existed", until October 11/th, when I put them in semi-hydro. Now they are all showing leaf & root growth. The only info on the tags were:1) Panda , 2) Queen Beer , 3) Hope Star , 4) Red Angel , 5&6) Cranberry 2 & 3. Can anyone give me a better description(names) for these ? Are the large or small types, what culture ? Thanks, John.

Panda, red angel, and cranberry names are too vague and could be several different types of orchids; queen beer is probably a dtps—I have one, it is not a large dtps and it is gorgeous!

they're all Phalaenopsis hybrids, probably sold as a batch through ebay. Doritis species are now considered Phalaenopsis, so Queen Beer is a Phalaenopsis.
