Re: Colocasia identification

This is certainly a Colocasia, but the plant is too young to be sure that it
is C. gigantea. However, the leaves don't look anywhere near white-chalky
enough. My suspicion is that is common C. esculenta. By the way, did the
seller say just where in Asia he 'personally collected' it? Colocasia
gigantea is restricted t Sumatera, through Peninsular Malaysia up though to
S China.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Colocasia identification
Importance: High

Dear Sirs,

I am an Italian naturalistic writer and photographer and I've bought a
rhizome on E-Bay one month a go from a man who said it belongs to a
Colocasia gigantea he personally collected in Asia.
Now I have a very small plant, but can you identify it? 
Here are the pictures:
Is it really a Colocasia gigantea or it could be a more common Colocasia
esculenta? What are the scientific characteristic of a Colocaosia gigantea?
Can you help me please?

Best regards
Stefano Barone
