It's probably to early to tell but in all likelihood it will drop that 
leaf and put up a new one.  I've had that happen before when leaves are 
damaged.  A great deal depends on how significant the damage and how 
early in the season it happens.  There's nothing you can do if that 
leaf is being shed.  I would just watch it for signs of new growth.  If 
the old corm hadn't been completely absorbed yet it's still there along 
with whatever new corm was being formed and they will usually just put 
up a new leaf.

Subject: [Aroid-l] Premature amorphophallus dormancy

I just purchased a large A.henryi that looked already fully grown for 
the year. Its about 18 inches tall and its about 3 years old.The guy I 
got it from said that he was growing it in full sun. So I put it in 
full sun only to have it get badly burned. I know that some amorphs can 
be grown in full sun if you start them there because I have done it 
before. Anyway, It is starting to get vertical wrinkles on the petiole 
as if it is starting to go dormant. Does anyone know if it will just go 
dormant for the season and be fine? Or is it possible that it will die? 
About half of the leaves were sunburned.
