    I won this at auction and asked him for a pic of the mother plant. I couldn't figure out how to attach a pic from a PM so he can respond here instead. Here is the plant in question that I won at auction at Phil's place. The leaves are getting huge and seems like a steady grower.

    Bren,

    I wish I knew, but it's an unknown, unless somebody else knows a name for it.

    Jeff,
    Still try and get a pic of the mother plant. Curious how she looks. Thanks!

    The leaves have to color up some before we can ID that one.

    Ray / Bren,

    Knowing what I know, I'm pretty sure this is it for color. The leaf gets pretty decent size, long petioles, but the color I think is it.

    Jeff, I remember you saying the color wasn't that great, I moved it to stronger sun. How big is your plant?? This sucker seems fast. I bumped it up to a 7 gal but may have to do bigger as it wants to tip over.
