Yep, that is BIG!! And it does support my theory. Usually when Amorphs
become oversized, the tubers start to split by activating subdominant
shoots. Sounds you have done a great job with that plant!! That means that
probably, after flowering, that second shoot will also produce a leaf and in
the end you'll have two independent tubers.
