NOID, My friend just gave it to me
Exclamation NOID, My friend just gave it to me (UPDATED: ORCHID STARTED TO BLOOM 🌻)

I've been in the hobby of orchids recently but I've never seen this type of orchid. My friend said he found it stuck to the bark of a felled tree. He also has the same type of orchid but according to him, it never produced flowers. It only makes this kind of structures (they look like serrated flower structures maybe, in photo).

Thanks for the response. Hoping to learn more with you guys! Cheers!

(Update : The orchid started to make a flower/s soon maybe)

First, Welcome!
Without flowers quite impossible to make an identification. I would suspect that it is in the Vanda family, but that's still a big group. That does look like a flower spike. If it blooms then maybe an ID is possible.

Welcome to the Orchid Board!

Post photos when it blooms. People will probably be able to give you a genus.

I would have guessed a Vanda crossed with a phalaenopsis.

It is actually producing 3 flower spikes, the leaves have some resemblance to phals but the leaf spacing is far too wide for a regular phal.

Interesting, the spikes are reminiscent of Phalaenopsis cornu-cervi.

Do you have more info about the location where it was found?

It also reminds me of the developing spikes on my Phal hygrochila (Hygrochilus parishii) but that one is larger, and also comes from southern China and southeast Asia... I was assuming if the plant from the OP was from the Philippines, that wouldn't make sense... but could be related, one of those less common Vandaceous genera that might have been lumped into Phalaenopsis by now. If it turns out to be a hybrid, Vandopirea Little One (which is now a Phalaenopsis since both Vandaceous parents got the lumping treatment) comes to mind. Looking forward to seeing flowers.

Could look like an Aerides, though leaves are slighly wider than most species.

I think it might be a Gastrochilus.

Exclamation [UPDATE] The no ID orchid finally made some flowers!

Hopefully this will help in identification.
