Marek's plant is not Colocasia esculenta; it's an Alocasia called A. infernalis.

Hi Marek good and bad news for you fellow enthusiast.

The bad news for you is that it is not a species, but nonetheless the good news is you have argueably the most stunning of the Colocasia family.

as for the size take a look at:

If it gets to that size I think you'll agree you have one wonderful plant

Dear Friends,

I have bought a small Alocasia with a trade name 'Black Magic'.
It is very small now, the largest leaf blade is 14 cm.
I append photos of this plant taken with and without flashlight.
When photographed with flash the leaf surface reflects red.
It also reflects red when it is disposed to direct sunlight.
There are red cells(?) not visible under low light.

The adaxial leaf surface is very dark green, almost black,
the abaxial is maroon brown, petioles are light brown
with lighter longitudinal dots 1x2 mm.
The peltate leaf base wraps the petiole.

Do you think it is a species?
How large does it grow?

I attach photos taken using various lighting.

Best,
Marek Argent
