Sometimes, things are better left the way they are.
Perhaps it's Mother Nature's way of creating something beautiful. :)

My suspicion is that is a Yellow Euro Peach .

Thanks this is really useful. Once seperated. Do you then plant immediately? And secondly as i was trying to seperate on the weekend, if you do a bad cut and all the roots come off? Will that plant survive?

Hello Mark ,
                 This is my experience with offsets .
If the offset has come off without much " cutting " damage ...ie  little open wound showing , let the sap oozing from the wounds dry out and " seal the wound .
Do not rush ... I sometimes leave the wound exposed to the early morning ( before 9am )  sun .
I now reseal with " Tree Seal " , a bitumen product ( available at nurseries ) and pot up once the seal is dry .

I used to just put Sulfur Powder on the wound but this does not always ensure that the cut will not be infected .
I have found that a few offsets that looked healthy initially ,  rot after 6 months or even a year .
I suspect that the sulfur powder gets washed off with watering and root rot sets in .

So in a nutshell ....clean and dry the wound well and cover the wound with Bitumen or WOOD GLUE to ensure a watertight seal .
When dry , pot up in a healthy , natural , potting mix and withhold watering for a week or 2 ... place the offset in a cool dry area .

If you have no roots on the offset and the Pseudo bulb ( the base of the plant where the leaves emerge from ) is not damaged , yes it is easy to re root .
Plant the rootless plant into a damp STERILE medium .... river sand , pool filter sand ,vermiculite or my favorite .... Spagnum Moss ,remember to seal the wound first as above.

Make sure there are enough drainage holes in your container as you want to keep your medium moist but not waterlogged
DO NOT LET THE MEDIUM DRY OUT as the new roots are delicate .... also do not fertigate your plants whilst they are re rooting .
The offset must focus on re rooting , not growth .
Place the container of re rooting plants in a cool warm area and leave undisturbed for a few months ... If you use a clear plastic container you will be able to see the roots forming after a month or so .

Regards,
              Lionel.
