Can anyone Identify this flower

rirszAugust 22, 2013

Currently it is growing indoors. It is potted in a small container of very moist soil. The plant flowers 3 to 4 times a year, with a single flower lasting approx. 1 week.

In a darkened room, the petals will close shut, and re-open when light enters the room.

I have no personal experience of this but could it be Zephyranthes Candida, commonly called the rainflower because it blooms after rainfall?

Whatever, it is very pretty.
