	I have two bulbifer doing exactly the same thing.  In fact, A.
bulbifer has always behaved like this for me.  It is about as seasonal as
konjac, but leaves only last about 2 months before being replaced.  My
bulbifer produce two leaves in succession each season.  Sometimes the
original dies, sometimes it dosen't.  I rest the bulb in october just like
the knojac.  Of course, my bulbifer are still too small to flower yet.
Perhaps mature specimens behave differently.  Finally, I find that
Amorphophallus in general need full sunlight to reach their maximum size.
