Yes, the flower certainly looks like a Lepanthes.

Correct. The one that I thought looked a lot like Specklinia endotrachys, I wonder... would be surprised for one of those to be 6' long ... at least mine is a pretty small plant, but it does bloom sequentially and under ideal natural conditions maybe it keeps going... my spikes only get to 6" to 10" before they poop out after 2-3 years, but I don't live in a tropical cloud forest.

There is at least one other 6'+ tall terrestrial in the region. It is very common. People grow it in their yards as an ornamental. I hate to admit Ive never ID'ed it...especial since I have some in my yard!

Pic attached.
That one is Arundia graminifolia. It's one of several different species referred to as "bamboo orchid".

I thought that also, it could be an environmental influence. The orchid matt is so thick up there that the bloom spikes are only on the top...thats where my 6' reference came from. Could be the individual plants are not in fact 6', but the matt is that thick so it appears they are.

Literally the summit is covered in a dense high matt of this species.

Thanks for that!

ID'ing that one has been on my todo list for some time. I have some at my place in Guatemala that are well over 6'. They are very common in the region.

Arundia graminifolia is a commonly grown orchid species and a popular garden orchid for folks in tropical / sub-tropical regions. It's not native to your area, but people have spread it throughout the tropics because of its appealing foliage, pretty flowers, and ease of care.

"IMG-20181231-WA0019" seems to be some sort of Elleanthus, similar to E. tonduzii
"IMG-20181231-WA0020" is almost certainly a Speckelina sp.
"IMG-20181231-WA0021" an Epidendum
Could the giant orchid be Corymborkis flava, not sure if it reaches 6ft tall though.
