    More like the grand finale of a fireworks show! I wander if flowering somehow induces offshoots? The one I got from bluemax a couple months ago shot out an offshoot when I clipped the flower too. I just remember thinking the distribution of leaves was a little uneven until I realized the leaves on the bottom had their own growth point. Then I looked even closer and there were four flower stalks forming. I just cut those off a week ago so maybe I'll get lucky and create some kind of paradoxa hydra lol.

    Just checked today and there actually is a third growth point starting out. The second one has a root that's about 1/2" long already. I probably should take the time to separate it. Surprisingly my lanata just decided to split into two as well. Gotta love propagation that takes no effort on your part haha.

    Same idea but less spectacular:



    The paradoxas in here are a combination of offshoots and leaf pulling clumps:



    These are leaf cuttings:
