Go look at the pics of the wild nurii it looks a lot like that leaf, my guess is it's how it grows under high light, I have some other nurii 'pahang mutated' from tissue cultures that I'm going to put in there and see what it does, it's emersed right now so I should be able to see what leaves it forms as it transitions, I'm hoping the affinis "red metallic" I just got looks like it does in the wild as well..
