I don't think we need to explain where this one gets it's name from, just have a look at the close up on the leaves. Another one of the Alocasia family, you'll find it in the humid jungles of South East Asia, so try and replicate these conditions for the best growth. 

They can also be a bit greedy, so you get away with feeding them once every 2-3 weeks in the summer. If you're using Shropshire Seaweed Feed, they'll really appreciate a weekly feast with the rest of your houseplants.
