Yes a colocasia…
Yes, Alocasia genus belongs to the tribe Colocasieae of Araceae family. I meant to say that this plant would most probably belong to the Genus Colocasia and not belong to the genus Alocasia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alocasia
… had identified it as Colocasia and I think she is correct. The rounded bases (and not hastate as in Alocasia) characterise Colocasia.
Please help ID…. Araceae plant in bloom: Pls help ID this plnt seen growing wild in outskirts of Calcutta. Its sid to be a kind of wild “Kachu’ ( Bengali)
