    I am not absolutely certain, but recently I was looking at an orchid that was quite simalar to your bottom two pictures. It was a Chiloschista lunifera. The leaves and roots on your picture are much more numerous and of a different texture (the one I looked at was leafless) but the blooms are surprisingly simalar. And both of them were tiny little mini's. Hope that gets you on the right track.

    I don't think it's a Chiloschista, cuz the plants in this genus consist of a root system, with no leaves.
    Your flower is similar to the flower in the genus Gastrochilus, but i'm no expert so can't say for sure.

    Hi,

    both are definitely not Chiloschistas, because they have leves and the flower form is different. The second is probably a Cleisostoma.

    Edit: the first is maybe a Polystachya.

    All the best, Hellmuth
