    There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of alocasia species. This one looks too immature to identify. Best if you go to a site such as TROPICOS which is a part of the Missouri Botanical Garden and just type in 'alocasia". A list of species will come up. You can then check the photos and hopefully find something that looks similar. If you're lucky enough to have an inflorescence (spathe) you will be more likely to find a positive ID.
