Ignore the plants in the background, it's the one in the center that needs a name. Shouldn't be very hard.

Good Luck

No, not a palm.

The plant in the photo is only about 10 inches tall at present. They can grow to over four feet tall.

Not an elephant ear nor tobacco.

This plant has just one giant divided leaf on top.

No, no, and no.

It blooms a flower as tall as the plant itself, but only blooms rarely and when old enough. The flower is purple on this variety.

Eric, yes it is an Amorphophallus aka VOODOO LILY, but not var. titanum(the largest flower in the world, and stinkiest).

This one is "A. konjac" a bit smaller and grows a bit different. I was going to post another photo to help with ID.

A. konjac flower found on internet:

Leaf from PDN:

Wish I could see your photos of the konjac flower and leaf, but I have that dread "Red X" disease.
