    Looks like Brassavola nodosa or one of its many hybrids.

    Virtually impossible to tell B. nodosa apart from several hybrids from this photo; B. Little Stars, B. Grand Stars, B. Green Stars, probably some others. Luckily that means you'll probably be equally happy with any of them. Should be easy to find B. nodosa or B. Little Stars.
