Alocasia reversa

I obtained this from Dewey Fisk August, 1997.   Ok so I was a bit disappointed.  Never having seen A. reversa, I had no idea what to expect and had fantasized a variation on A. micholitziana.  I expected a white leaf with green veins, much like a Caladium.  That's reverse, isn't it?  Nevertheless, the plant arrived in great shape and is putting out new leaves.  Apparently the real meaning of the name is that the reverse of the leaf has little color as opposed to so many other Alocasias.
