This is apparently a recently dicovered species alocasia (supposedly from Borneo), but already available commercially, sometimes in such unlikely places as Home Depot or Orchard Supply Hardware.
It is very susceptible to spider mites. I also think it prefers high humidity. My plant has never been as gorgeous as the one below. I think I'll try building a mini-greenhouse for it.
