New find. Has Excalibur tag. This looks like 2 different plants & when I was separating them they were connected by stolon. I'm thinking it is a Fame Monstrose with a baby? I've read on here that sometimes they can revert to regular leaves. Bought in a 6" pot. I tip my hat to you. Group hug Thank You!

Can we have a photo from the side of the two plants Linda? If they are connected by a stolon, it is a Fame Monstrose

Thumb of 2014-06-11/chickhill/ef40b7can you tell/see the stolon? Enlarge for better view
Thumb of 2014-06-11/chickhill/3a6efbthis one has small knots
Ok, would I enter each one as Fame Monstrose?
Did have to clean off some decay where they were so tightly joined. I did rinse off much of the soggy soil it came potted in. Under shade cover for now.

I keep waiting for some of the offsets to turn into Fame Monstrose. Still no luck.
