was it grown in really low light conditions? 3 to 4 inch long petioles and rhizomes seem small. maybe you have a new species.

no. not low light. grown in medium-high light. here is some I grew in a 10 gallon under a finnex planted+ 24/7. the leaf goes almost all the way down to the rhizome.




here is an image online and again the leaf goes almost all the way down the stem to the rhizome. image after image it looks like this. not like the OP's plant.

Agree with @DaveKS, and as to length of petioles, it can vary quite a bit depending on density. The original picture looks pretty normal and not crowded, but when it gets so dense that no light reaches the rhizome, I've noticed the petioles tend to get longer so the leaves can extend out past the existing ones.
