Thanks!

I hunted for that specific plant for a month before I found one. I tried starting from seeds, but didn't get any to germinate.

Finally found a supplier that had it - Tricker.com. The plant they sent me was HUGE, and already had four buds on it.

I recommend Tricker to any water lily lovers (side note: Tricker was founded by William Tricker, one of the early American water lily hybridizers).

Is that lighting or a filter, or soft luminescence? Gorgeous.

It's actually a bad photograph that I tried to adjust in editing.

Here's a better picture, without the retouching:
