    Looks like it might be about a year old or more when you got it. Really looks better now compared to when you got it. Hope my plant comes out as beautiful.

    So I don't know what's going on but it seems like every leaf is starting to grow new plants. I can grab a photo of this a bit later when I get the chance.

    At a guess, I would say that your conditions are wetter than optimal on the surface of your growing medium. While it may be desirable to have more plants (yay!) the conditions needed to cause them to form may also cause rotting of the crown of the plant. Can you cut back on the amount of water to the top of your pot?

    I did remove the sphagnum top dressing a bit ago. But I can show you exactly what I mean by new growth. It's not even coming off the side in the soil. Just grown where the dew tentacles use to be on old leaves. Gonna post a photo in a bit here.

    That would confirm mark's assumption. It's wet enough around the plant that the leaves are producing plantlets, like how a leaf cutting would (though I was not aware that this could occur while the leaf was still attached to the plant!)

    Okay here we go.



    You can see the new growth on the leaves at the base of the plants. Looking like nodules but turn into new sprouts I've been observing because in first pic you can see one already opening. Crown looks fine to me.
