This is an Alocasia. The leaves are upright, not bent down like Jack's Giant. The mid-rib and veins are very prominent as well. The three most readily available large peltate leaved Alocasia it might be are A. odora, A. x calidora and A. gageana. I can't tell which but @LariAnn might.

But now I want Jack's Giant cause I just looked at the correct thread and it was the one I ordered.

They're both water and food hogs so whatever you're doing Jack will love it too!

Sue,
At this size, it is harder to determine if the plant is A. odora or A. x calidora. I'm leaning towards A. odora, though. I'm certain it is not A. gageana.

Happy New Year,
LariAnn

Thanks LariAnn for your input, I tip my hat to you. I did move it to A. odora as Bill was selling that one too around the same time.

How did you make the plant grow like this.
The leafs of my plant lean down after a while and it doesnt produce any pups and grows slow.
