It's an Alocasia. I remember seeing one like it (maybe this same plant) at the swap and talking about it. I think it was A. odora or the hybrid A. 'Portodora', but I can't remember which one. (I had guessed one and it was the other.)

It looks one I brought. I believe it is alocasia odora. My
portodora leaves grow more upright and more ruffles on the leaves.

Well, the leaves aren't real ruffled. So, I guess I'll wait to see how tall it gets. That seems to be the determining factor, because the pix I've found aren't exact to this one... Don't care, really, just love the look of it. Thanks to who ever brought it.
