new growth on bat plant

staffordshire, United Kingdom Gb

my bat plant has a couple of leaves which seem to be growing at the side of the plant. it looks like new leaves come from the centre of the plant so is this shoot a seperate plant? if so can it be removed and replanted without causing damage to the main plant. i have added a picture of the area close up in my pictures (picture 39)

Looks like it could be a baby, but i don't know anything about this plant so i won't say for definite. Hope someone else can help

i hope so would be great to try and grow one of these from small. apparently they dont flower until they are 2 years old so will be a long wait. will wait to see if anyone can advise more.
thanks sewingkilla
