I love the look of the leaves of this plant. I hope to get a better picture of it once it grows up.

Is this a species of Kaempferia? It looks very familiar.
Very pretty leaves!

The person who gave me this had it listed as kaempferia rotunda. I have a picture of the flower that was on the other plant. It gets a small purple flower close to the ground.
