I wouldn’t split the tubers. The top tuber will
still draw energy from the lower when it breaks dormancy. While I have no
experience with this affecting a koratensis, I did have the exact same thing
happen to a titanum. I simply planted the double tuber and it’s
growing fat and happy.

My Amorphophallus koratensis had it leaf removed by the
wind recently. Its cold now so it just went dormant. But as you can see from
the pictures, it looks like two tubers stuck together when it is in fact one.
The bottom one was the original tuber. Interestingly the bottom part is the
same size as it was when I planted it in the spring. It now weighs 13oz.
Anyway, a friend said I should cut the bottom off. I am not at all
comfortable with that. What do you think? Do you think it might flower for me
next year also? Is prety heavy.
