It's no problem at all. That tuber on the bottom is just the old tuber, 
but there's a nice new fat one to replace it.  I've made it my policy to 
leave the old one in place and not break it off - unless it were to come 
off with virtually no force. Just plant the entire thing next year and 
everything will be fine. Whether or not it will flower is anyone's 
guess. Only the plant knows!
