Your leaf description sounds like how I'd describe Am. atroviridis' dark
form, sometimes being called 'Midnight'. Did the tuber look like
atroviridis? Sometimes the young tubers aren't that distinctive, but for
an 18" petiole you ought to have gotten the characteristic shape.
The plants I have in leaf of that cultivar so far do have petiole
mottling, but they're milk-chocolate brown, maybe slightly more reddish.
You said yours are solid color, maybe that's within the natural variability.

I have a beautiful small (young?) Amorphophallus in full leaf. The only
id. on the tag says it came from Clement. The petiole is about 18” tall
and DEEP redish-brown, with no other color. The leaf is about 12”
diameter. It has a very deep green velvety appearance, with a trace of
a pink border around each segment. Does anyone have a clue. Ron Kessler
