Orchids in October

Miltassia" Spider orchid" name unknown. Vigorous and easy to flower. (9 flowers in total)

It's mid October now, and the weather is getting colder. It's time to bring all my "vacation site" orchids back into the house. Before I do, I have to check and clean each one of them. I was surprised to find that many orchids have been in spike or in sheath already.

Onc. papilio Mendenhall " Hildos"
I posted this orchid in August. After I enjoyed its beauty for about a month, it faded and fell off, but another bud started to form, and it's in full bloom now. I wonder how many flowers will bloom in this stem?
