She's a hardy water lily I got from the local nursery in Singapore, where I live. When I bought her back in early May, she was in a bad shape and no flower yet. The shop owner didn't know what species of water lily is this. She just starts blooming today.

According to https://identify.plantnet.org/
45.33% Nymphaea Alba L. (White water lily)
17.13% Nymphaea Mexicana Zucc. (Banana water lily)

Some details;
•She's a hardy water lily
• Her biggest pad is around 11 cm
• Her flower color is yellow, ± 7 cm width (which makes me doubt that she's a Nymphaea Alba-white water lily).

It’s a pretty one, whatever it is! Does it stay the same color, or do the flowers colors?
Yes it is! The flower is prettier than my N. Dauben. Today it's the first time it bloom since I bought it few months ago. So I can't tell yet if it will change color later.

I've done some more research, there are other water lily with similiar yellow looking flower, namely N. Moorei, Malangka Ubol, and Chromatella.

Still can't really tell which one lol.

Even if can't tell it is real pretty! Enjoy, also see if it has scent that is sometimes a help in identifying.
