This plant is not a Philodendron - it is my hybrid of Alocasia odora and Alocasia cuprea (Alocasia x cupredora), done years ago. It ended up at that garden, most likely, because Fairchild Tropical Garden shared it with them. Fairchild is the first garden that got one of these. See my page below for more info.

Oh my! I would love to see you succeed in crossing this with A. odora! So far your odora hybrids are by far the largest or most vigorous growers here.

That is the one! Thank You! LariAnn for popping in! Amazing how your hybrid Alocasia ended up at the Botanical Garden UG, Ghent, Belgium! It sure is a beauty!
And thank you Evan for asking!
