Re: [Aroid-l] Alocasia or other genus ID

This plant looks very much like Colocasia gigantea. Due to the very large size when compared to the person standing nearby, only a few plants qualify. It is clearly not a Xanthosoma, nor is it Alocasia "Borneo Giant". The leaf venation and overall growth habit indicates to me that it is Colocasia gigantea.

Attached is a picture of this plant for those who cannot access the exoten-forum.

Best regards,
