Out of curiosity, where did you obtain your seeds? I recently (well a few months ago) had a single A.titanum seedling do this as well out of a batch of 5. It didn't seem to produce a tuber during this time for me while the others did, and I had taken it out of direct sunlight for fear of it getting burned by the sun. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with it not producing a tuber, mainly because I'm unsure it could. As far as I had understood it, these albinos will eventually die (I believe the "Shattered Glass" A.konjac variant produces a number of albino offsprings that live for the season, but die without making a tuber). It was just odd as I had never heard/seen of it occurring with other Amorphophallus species; not to say that it doesn't happen, just that I personally hadn't heard about it.

The albino A.titanum I had eventually died with barely a recognizable tuber, but I knew it wasn't going to grow. I don't know if you can feed enough nutrients through the soil to get it going, but because of how much is produced by the leaf, I would suspect feeding directly through the roots won't be of much help.
