I believe this is the same plant that I have. The leaves and blooms look the same, though I will know for certain with its next bloom. Mine likes full sun, with some shade in the afternoon, and steady moisture, but not standing in water. I have a baby off of this plant as well, which seems to be growing nicely under a grow light.
