The question is, where did you get the tuber? I've read a lot of controversy about some sellers selling "fake" titanums. I get mine from Tindara Orchids which is a very reputable seller.
All of mine had multiple leaves, but have not dug them up yet - maybe I'll find some offsets too? Who knows!

Subject: [Aroid-l] Amorphophallus Titanum offset?
Well here is some food for thought. I dug up one of my titanums that was going dormant to repot today and imagine my surprise when I found a second smaller tuber alongside the main one. It had a small second leaf all summer but I imagined it was just feeding the main tuber as I thought they did not divide or offset, but here we are. Now I pose this question. The seller I bought these from grows their stock from seed. Could some genetic diversity have actually created an offsetting titantum? I guess another growing season is in order to see if it holds this trait. Bye now.
