I have the same problem with an A. amazonica that I've had for several
years. I know it can get much larger leaves than it has put out in the past
two summers because three years ago it put out a couple huge leaves but now
when it's in a growth cycle it puts out more inflorescences than leaves and
hasn't come close to matching the huge leaves that have since passed. I got
very frusterated with it last fall when it put up three inflorescences in a
row and  after many months of no activity it is putting up a fourth
inflorescence. Too bad they can't be selfed then the flowers would be worth
