This one looks very similar to Dwarf Caladium (Caladium humboldtii 'Marcel') I've read Oglesby is growing them now. http://www.ballpublishing.com/...
As the leaves get larger they have more white than in this photo.

Mine shown in the photo is a mature plant. The leaves are no bigger than a Quarter. The pot it's in is a 4 in Azalea pot. It could be "Marcel" but the nursery had a tag in them saying" Paper White ". They only had a few and they haven't gotten them in since that I know of. Not that that means it's correct, as I've never seen it anywhere else as "Paper White". Super cute plant that definitely needs to stay in a dish garden or terrarium. Maybe in mass in a small protected bed.
God gave us wings. He just called them horses
