You have several choices:

X. mafaffa Schott
X. mafaffa var. blandum (Schott) Engler
X. mafaffa var. poeppigii (Schott) Engler
X. mafaffa var. typicum Engler

and possibly

X. mafaffoides .... a new species identified by Bunting in 1988

All of the above didn't come from my head. It can be found at w3TROPICOS,
an excellent respource at .

I believe the plant in question is what is being sold in the trade as either
Xanthosoma maffafa or Xanthosoma 'Lime Zinger'.

I have seen the above 2 plants and they are the same plant. It certainly
appears to be a yellow-leafed Xanthosoma.

X. maffafa can be purchased from Southern Shade
X. 'Lime Zinger' can be purchased from Gainesville Tree Farm
