Alocasia odora

(Roxb. 1832) K. Koch 1854

One of the biggest Alocasias. The mature plant is about 3.5 m tall.
It is often mistaken as A. macrorrhizos which has not peltate leaves and a different inflorescence.

These photos were taken
in Palmiarnia, Zielona Góra, Poland.
The inflorescence was about 20 cm tall,
so you can imagine the size of the leaves.
