Any idea what those other plants are? Volunteers? I tend to remove volunteers from pots because "dirt plants" (non-orchids) tend to keep the mix too wet. But if there isn't much (or any) medium, the...

Could be either, or both. (I see lots of year-to-year variation in blooming, my Cyms get whatever Mother Nature provides in the way of light and temperature) But congratulations on the flowers!

Oops... sorry. Den anceps I'd suggest just mounting, or just enough a basket to give it something to hold onto... it's a rambler.

L. anceps is one of the most bulletproof orchids around. Depending on size, I'd suggest mount, or a basket with little or no medium. Even in my climate, which is drier than yours, in pots or in...

Same for mine. There is sometimes very dark green near the end of the leaves toward the stem when the light is low (like this time of year) but basically, leaves are pretty solid purple.

Canes still look green and viable to me. I think you just have to be patient. Water lightly (let dry between waterings) and don't fertilize. Once you see the beginnings of new growth in spring you...

I'd consider it spam to remove and ban user. It's commercial - and soliciting more commercial posts. Could go under classified, but I think it just doesn't belong. However, the user is young, and...

once the roots grab the cork, the orchid will orient itself. It's how they grow in nature. Given adequate water and humidity, Phals are excellent mounted plants.
