general opinion is that titanum doesn't grow offsets.
I am not sure, if I read it right, but I found this
already some time ago:
"Since 2001, the
plant in sunny conditions, named 'Hyperion,' has thrown off some smaller

If that titan really grows offsets, it's at least a
very rare trait in titanum.
Maybe we get

Well here is some food for thought. I dug up
one of my titanums that was going dormant to repot today and imagine my
surprise when I found a second smaller tuber alongside the main one. It
had a small second leaf all summer but I imagined it was just feeding
the main tuber as I thought they did not divide or offset, but here we
are. =A0Now I pose this question. The seller I bought these from grows
their stock from seed. Could some genetic diversity have actually
created an offsetting titantum? I guess another growing season is in
order to see if it holds this trait. =A0Bye now.
