I ordered an Alocasia Nigra Bulb from Hirts.com and this is what I got. Does anyone know the name of it?

Thanks Sue. Hi pondcrazy, this is a Elephant Ears (Xanthosoma) (Xanthosoma). A picture of the leaf stalk might help to zero in on which one.

I doesn't have a very big stalk yet. I ordered the bulb, it was suppose to be a Plumbae Taro and they sent the wrong bulb.
