This vanda pushed up a spike right after I got it. The place I got it from said it's tricolor. It has a resemblance of a tricolor. I tried to search up photos of this one, but I didn't find a single photo of this paticular variety. It does have a pleasant fragrance! Can anyone identify the variety or is it a different species that was mislabeled?

It actually looks like V. x geraldinoi, which is believed to be the natural cross between lamellata and luzonica. It differs quite much from the artificial hybrid V Loke.

The closest picture was one that was on alamy stock photos. It just differed in petal shape and had pink spots instead of red spots like my vanda.
