I have yet to see one split like this. Is it a reason for concern or just the pstem pushing out rapidly?

Its giving offshoots, its normal.

In order to mature properly one offshoot should be allowed along with main(as main stem will die after bearing fruit, will be replaced by the offshoot). You can separate the other offshoot and plant it at some distance away from the main plant.

These are not offshoots. They are older leaves from the mother that are essentially falling away. I'm aware that this happens, but normally it's after the leaf is dead and the p stem had pushed out wide enough. These look different, like it's happening too soon. Here are some offshoots from other varieties I have and what some of the dead leaves do on those as they fall away. You can see is quite different.

Ok, first one looks like offshoot growing in-between leaves.

Offshoots make the main plant lean, as the young plant grow.

Never heard of that. I'll check between the leaves that are falling away when I get back and see if there is anything coming up there. Is it safe to let them grow that way?

I'm really hoping for a good batch of pups from the variegated plant. I'd like to relocate a few and pot one for winter because in unsure of its cold hardiness.
