    The one on the left might be Coelogyne multiflora (Orchidaceae).

    The one on the right might be some kind of waterleaf family (Hydrophyllaceae) plant.

    I don't know. I googled Codon, Draperia, Ellisia, Emmenanth, Eriodictyon, Eucrypta, Hesperochiron, Hydrolea, Hydrophyllum, Lemmonia, Miltitzia, Nama, Nemophila, Phacelia, Pholistoma, Romanzoffia, Tricardia, Turricula, Wigandia from that family for images, none of them even close reminds mine. I remember, it was catching attention by long yellow stamens, it was not near water

    I realized that I took 2 pictures right next to the second flower, this means the flower belongs to dry S. Africa climate

    It’s not Coelogyne mutiflora the pseudobulbs are not the same and the leafs are not the same.
    It looks to be a kind of Dendrobium if you look at Dendrobium chrysotoxum for an example it looks close except for the flower color is pink.

    I was looking a Epidendrum Stamfordianum a Panamanian Species looks close. It would be easier if the picture of the flower were close-ups.It is a great looking community of orchids.
