Random plant event: Sansevieria trifasciata 'Bantel's Sensation' offsets

I've had this plant for over a year now, and for the first, maybe nine or ten months that I had it, it did absolutely nothing. Which was depressing. Recently, it's really started to pump out the new growth, which is awesome, and then I noticed on May 14 that it was even offsetting. I mean, it's not exciting for what it is just yet, but for what it's going to be, I'm pretty stoked.

The offset.

It's interesting that with such different climates that our plants are sending up offsets at the same time. I planted my Sansevieria trifasciata in my garden several months ago to see how it would do, and so far, so good. I haven't seen any growth on the leaves, so the offsets came as a real surprise. In a more moderate climate, this stuff is supposedly invasive, but I know I won't have that problem. But then, maybe I will from the number of offsets coming up!
