    Should I be expecting a purple or pink flower from this cross?

    I believe your plant is mislabeled. It looks like an Angrecum not Vanda/Neofinetia falcata.

    It could very well be Angraecum didieri. I base that on both the flower and shape of the leaves.

    Yes, not neofinetia falcata, but what a lovely Angraecum bloom and healthy plant.
