This is a very deformed bloom, only the spathe color is correct. See what a real, natural and single spathed bloom looks like in the description of the species in Aroideana.
This one demonstrates a stage where the meristem/main rhizome may in fact be splitting into two plants. This wide spadix/double spathe ''syndrome'' was discussed some time ago on aroid-L, and seems to be in common in aroids plants treated with chemicals or produced by the tissue culture method of reproduction. On some plants a single flattened petiole but with two leaf blades is also common. I THINK I replied to this before, but it might be lost in cyberspace as I did not see my reply on aroid-L, so here goes again!
