Plant ID needed (Alocasia or Colocasia?)

MimiGoldAugust 8, 2012

6 years ago I bought 2 of these plants from the local nursery before I knew much about gardening. Didn't save the the plant id tag from the pots or make note of the plant name. I have transplanted them a few times over the years and they have always grown well. I am hoping someone can identify the name of this plant so I can make sure they have the best growing conditions to reach their potential.

I am pretty sure they are either an Alocasia or Colocasia, but I don't know which, or their botanical name. I hope someone here is able to give me the plant identification.

Thanks so much!

Looks more like a Philodendron bipinnatifidum, but neither Alocasia nor Colocasia.

Sorry, I left out the other option, that it could be Philodendron Xanadu.
