I've been near the local garden center and just had to peek inside. The result is I've found a Frithia (fairly sure it's a pulchra). It was in a shape you would expect: some of the leaves bloated and burst, some half rotten, humus soil soaked. But you know me. I couldn't leave it there. So I brought it home, washed it (several leaves have come off as soon as I touched them - that's how bloated it was - and most of the root) and laid it out to dry. I will pot it tomorrow. I don't think the chances for this plant to survive are high but we'll see.
