    I have a Mini Mark that had its center leaf damaged from cold. In an epic effort to stay alive,it threw 3 spikes trying to reproduce, then spent the entire summer nurturing 2 new plants at the base.
    The exact same thing happened to my P.Philippinensis, which also lost its center leaf and threw 2 new growths at the base, now happily throwing roots and carry a set of two leaves each.
