Yes it is a Xanthosoma, but not sure what species. It's not violaceum or a plain sagittifolium, as violaceum has completely violet stems, and sagittifolium has plain green stems.

Nice plants though icon_thumright

Still looking for a huge Pseudopanax crassifolius...

Is there a hybrid between sagittifolium and violaceum? And would that be the pic?
