I received the same response the first time I posted this info. I've
checked my plants' leaf characters with the literature, and I'm fairly
confident that they are titanum. I fertilize very heavily; this may have
stimulated abnormal proliferation when young. I have observed this
phenomenon in the genus Agave and others - in generous cultivated conditions
some "nonsuckering" agaves will occasionally produce offsets. You can check
my plants' ID when my photos get posted to the aroid website in a month or so.
