it has a similar growth habit to the yucca houseplant that is mass produced, maybe it is done like that yucca.

i have one where the top died and it has sprouted loads from the base which I think is going to look great when it gets bigger. these can be seperated but I will leave mine as is because you dont see many multihead torbay dazzlers
