Variegated Colocasia

I have no idea what species of Colocasia I received in the mail.  I suspect it's a variegated C. esculenta but won't know till it gets a bit larger and blooms.

A grower had lost my order and then ran out of two of the items I had ordered.  They offered this as a substitution.  Frankly, I'm glad the errors happened because I've not seen this elsewhere.  So far it's still tiny, but it appears to be growing rapidly.  I'll update the photos as it continues to grow.
