From what I know about the species that you mentioned, Den leucocyanum is probably the most difficult - it comes from the New Guinea highlands, needs to be kept cool and humid. And also likely the...

Agree with Claypot ... probably underwatering. Oncidiums (and relatives) need to stay a lot more damp than Phalaenopsis or Cattleyas. I'd suggest, giving the pot a really good bath under the faucet...

You should not be watering your Fdk... wait for the new growth. Losing those small, old pseudobulbs is, I think, just force of nature. The plant is done with them. If it is...

Phals seem to tolerate repotting while blooming. I'd go ahead and pot that one up, in a well-drained medium. (Like medium bark) Let the roots turn silvery before watering again - the open medium...
