I can't comment with regard Amorphophallus, but I've had Typhonium
venosum
(which the literature often says is solitary leaved) with four leaves
simultaneously, the largest 1.5 m tall with a leaf blade 1 meter in
diameter
and the smallest 0.75 tall and 0.5 cm in diameter and regularly with
three
leaves simultaneously. Plants with this many leaves went on to produce
exceptionally large tubers (maximum 1.25 kg with a diameter of  30.5 cm.
