Plant is 2 1/2 ft high - leaf 19 inches long.

I've never seen this one. Looking up Thai Giant, it doesn't have that shade or pattern.
Or is this just sick? My daughter paid $ 40.00 for it.

All opinions welcome . . . I'm stumped!

No, it is a form of Colocasia gigantia given the common name 'Thai Giant' see http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/122962/

Well thank you for your answer.

After looking at the pictures in the links you so kindly provided, I am wondering if my daughter's is so very light green because
it needs feeding or more sun. It was sitting in the shade plant area a the nursery.

We went back to the nursery and the guy there said, yes, it would remain a light green. Guess we'll wait and see.

Different plants of the same species and variety may have subtly different colours and even not so subtly.

I left there on Tue to come back to Iowa and it doesn't look good. It seems to be burning so we may lose it. It is awesome and is even putting on a bloom.
What ear blooms? . . . this one. We will see how it does.
