I have run into this weird situation where a second stem1 is coming out of the main one, like in the two following photos.
From what I've seen so far this is not a keiki, as a keiki is supposed to be higher up in the plant and separation is straightforward. I have searched on the internet and I couldn't find any similar case. I got into temptation to separate them but then cut them where? There is no clear distinction where the one ends and the other begins. I'm afraid that if I attempt separation, one of them will end up without roots...
The other option is to do nothing at all, let them be and see how things will turn out naturally. The fact that the smaller one is at right angles with the bigger one makes me worry about the plant's gravitropism. I'm afraid that at the end I might end up from two to zero.
So my questions are, has anyone seen a similar situation and what is the best course of action?
1 Not sure if this is a stem per se though as I think that the stem is where the flowers grow, not where the leaves are. If anyone knows a better name, please do suggest.
