    Here's a link that should explain the phenomenon in detail.

    I think that your VFT needs some good, natural SUNLIGHT, too!

    What you are witnessing is false vivipary or vegetative apomixis -- where a plantlet forms along the length of a flower stalk. Occasionally, it can be rooted as though a cutting. Here's a link to some other images, featuring that phenomena, and some other strange things:

    Would that happen to be a "dentate" plant?
