Dear Margret and Dieter,

I do not believe that true 'branching' can take place in any aroid. As Peter Boyce explained, new entire leaves w/ petioles are produced from a previous leaf sheath or cataphyll which is always located at the base of the previous older petiole/leaf, or in the case of some cataphylls on the apex of a dormant tuber.
No aroid produces a new leaf from any area of a previous petiole except from the sheath at its base. No photo came with your posting.

Good Growing,
