Those large singular leaves sound like floating leaves to me, and, if they
are, your plant is not undulatus, which almost always produces small
plantlets instead of flowers and almost never produces floating leaves.
Perhaps you have A. echinatus, which produces underwater and, later,
floating leaves.
