So i know konjacs can grow two leafs but mine acts weird.
At first it grew two leafs, after that it grew another leaf and again another two leafs, now its growing its sixth leaf.

I have to mention that the tuber isn't big enough to split.
I know it could be pups but the leafs are too close to each other for it to be pups.

Leaves coming from the ground? Leaves growing on top? Maybe you should add a photo.

I don't know a thing about Voodoo Lily (Amorphophallus konjac) but from some of the photos in our database, it appears normal for them to have more than two leaves:

Don't know if this will help but I found a short discussion about Konkac forming multiple petioles here:
