    Thanks for your comments!
    Sorry for my carelessness! The correct ID is Cattleya labiata 'October Fantasy'.
    Hi Freddie,the flowers are not so huge compare to the past few years.

    San,
    Your C.labiata is a variety multiforme.
    This means the spot on the lip isn't like the species type form filling most of the frontal lobe.
    All flowers with the color of the species type form and with the spot shapes different than the normal shape are variety multiforme.
