    The photo is not so clear & flower has not open fully.

    My guess would be either Cattleya Chocolate Drop or its hybrid or Cattlianthe Sagarik Wax. Usually flower is glossy dark red & fragrance is very nice.

    Hi,
    Since the flower is not fully opened, it is difficult to say for sure what it really is. I am making this suggestion based on the overall look of the plant, buds etc. I think it is Lc. Summerland Girl 'Orchidglade' when the flower opens entirely, post a close up for us to see. In the meantime google this name and see what you think.

    Well Cattlianthe Sagarik Wax is the cross between Cattleya Summerland girl x Cattlianthe Chocolate drop.
