has anyone ever had an elephant ear grow two leaves per stem? I have one bulb with four seperate shoots and three are normal but the fourth has two leaves per each of the three new stems.

Woww... thats a new thing for me. Never seen before. You are so lucky to get that. Wish they are permanent mutation so you can propagate it Smiling

By the way welcome Pancake. You can complete your detail profile so other member can notice where are you from.

Thanks for the shout-out Sue! Single leaves that have two main veins aren't that uncommon but I've never seen anything like this. Is this a Colocasia John? Is it an off-set from a tissue culture plant?

Here's a link to the I.A.S. Aroid Oddities page. Nothing like this consistently two leaved mutation that I can see.
