They are lovely! These semi teretes never fail to reward their owners with their frequent and colourful blooms. Your posts have rekindled my interest in them and I think I'll start collecting them again. In the 60s and 70s they formed the second largest part of my collection.
I really like the second orchid in the original post!
The first post has 4 images. Starting with the third image. That's the one I really like.
Kinda gradient lavender with orange/red lip. And the yellow green streak in the petals. Lovely!
Does it have a name?
My local grocery store sells vandas from time to time. They sell them completely inside a, I assume clear plastic, open top cylinder. I did read the instructions on the display once. And it indicated to fill the vase with water with the plant then after 5 minutes to dump the water out and leave the vanda in place.
But I haven't tried one.

If the humidity is quite low, you could increase watering to twice daily. Then you could put water in containers beneath your vandas to increase the humidity. Low humidity causes vandas and their kin to lose their leaves, resulting in ungainly looking, leggy plants with leaves only at the top portion.
