    Hi Lin, plant on the left side of the screen is a Cymbidium, and the one the right appears to be of the Vanda alliance.

    They are both hybrids, so no, you're never going to know for sure what hybrids they are.

    Both are hybrid. But the second pic maybe has a root parent from Vanda Luzonica.

    Looks very nice. First one looks like Dendrochilum genus to me. A close up of a single flower would help ID better. Paph is a complex paph and ID is going to be tough.
