Alocasia "Hilo Beauty"

Is this really an Alocasia?  It sure seems to be growing more like a small colocasia.  It was sent as a bonus plant by Glasshouse Works after my 1997 mega-order.  It arrived with a small offset which has also rooted.  It currently has 2 leaves and shows signs of new growth.  Given my limited space, I'm hoping someone tells me that it can hibernate as a tuber over the winter.
