At a garden show the speaker referred to propagating from the 'pup' found at the stem of the plant. I've never heard anyone else refer to this method. Have you and is it done like propagating with a leaf?

A "pup" refers to a plantlet that grows at the stem. It is similar to a plantlet that is grown from the leaves. Many times, people assume it is just the plant getting larger at the base, when in fact, there are several plants growing together as the pups get older. These can be removed and transplanted to form new plants.
