I suggest you look for a tag in the pot since it belongs to your mum. It's really hard to give you a name for sure since it's a hybrid and an intergeneric hybrid at that.. Perhaps leave it as an unknown spotting and someone might be familiar with the hybrid.

Thanks for your help :) I'm still new to this site. So what would you suggest I put as the common name and scientific name?

Looks more like an intergeneric hybrid, Maybe Miltassia:

@ceherzog, what species ID would you suggest?

It's pretty but I don't think it's a cymbidium.
