Default Ascofinetia Peaches - Weird color breaks - 2015 update

I purchased this plant out of bloom. I have now bloomed it twice, and each time it has had weird color breaks in all the flowers. It is almost as if it can't make up it's mind between two different color schemes.

I have two differen theories as to what is going on:

A. Virus
The plant is growing well, and there are no markings on the leaves. Also, color breaks in flowers are more pronounced than the random 'fuzzy' breaks you see in a virused Cattleya.

B. Could it be a chimera?
If two different pollen with distinctly different color codes had pollinated simultaneously, it might look somewhat like this.

Any thoughts/comments?

July 4, 2015: Plant is doing well, it has 2 basal keikis, and combined there are 6-7 spikes this year.

Color breaks are 'consistent', in that there are solid pink, solid orange, and multi-colored flowers on all spikes. Adding a couple of photos from this year in a new post.

Your plant's flowers are very appealing Fairorchids. There are some Neofinetia, like Yubae--which is an unregistered hybrid--that has numerous colors from yellow to red to orange all on the same flower and on different parts of the flower--like your flowers. So it just could be genetics. I suppose if I owned this flower, I'd be singing Lady Gaga's Born This Way! LOL!

Yes, very reminiscent of Yubae. If it were my plant, I wouldn't worry about virus.

Doesn't look like a virus to me and the mixed coloration is very attractive.

I like it. I don't know if its a virus or not.

Simply, it may be similar to phal tetraspis c1 where you don't really know where the red will show.

It appears to be a rather rare virus. One that is so unique, that it in itself is very valuable.

Jesting aside, when I repot next time, if keikis have roots I will separate them, and then there will be 1 or 2 divisions available.
