    I've had this one a few years. The largest leaves are over 12" long. Any ideas?:confused:

    I've seen Randy's plant and it's not wide enough to be Duncan McCaw.

    Mike - if you are talking about your plant you showed me that you thought was Duncan Macaw, it is not the same as Randy's IMO.

    The have a similar shape, but the leaves are a lot larger than Duncan Macaw.

    Duncan Macaw leaves get that forest green color and consistent parallel veining. The leaves above are red and black and the veining is not as consistent. I also don't believe DM leaves have the undulated edges that are present on Randy's plant. I'm leaning toward Phil's guess of America.
