Hi Arnold,

I think this is  probably Arisaema franchetianum.  The  fargesii, 
franchetianum, bogneri complex  is  very confused. Some  taxonimists 
suggest they  are all one  species. Gusman in his  recently published  
book  recognises fargesii and franchetianum.
What  I  grow as franchetianum   also  has  really  glossy  green 
leaves  like  your plant.

Cheers ,
