Would like to see the plant in a weeks time

I have never seen this plant, so had to look it up. The pictures and key indicate an upright infloresence on a longer stalk with more spaced leaves sitting out from the stem - but I guess you know that.

It is difficult to do IDs during development unless you know the plant, and the sources never give enough information. I think you are probably right though, particularly as there seem to be notches in the petals.
