Alocasia lowii is a member of a group of Alocasias that can be described as the "longiloba/lowii complex", within which defining species is a challenge. They intercross easily and many varieties and hybrids have been distributed amongst collectors and other plant fanciers. This particular specimen displays the general morphology of the lowii type, which is why we've pictured it here. We are also using this plant in hybridization as a sort of follow-up to our work with A. watsoniana. The inflorescences on this plant are very similar to those on A. watsoniana, and no doubt these plants are very closely related.
Above is a closer look at the leaf of A. lowii, showing the distinctive silver coloring around the leaf veins.
