The leaves get quite large, about 2' - 2 1/2' long.

Thanks,

Donna,

That plant is an Alocasia in the longiloba/lowii complex. They have interbred so much (and been crossed) that it is very difficult to pin down a species name on them. As a group, they are also quite variable. For purposes of ID, you can call the plant Alocasia longiloba.
