Dear Jan;

I noticed what looks like tiny tubers starting to form at the
intersection of the leaf and the stem.

These small bulbils form at the top of the leaf at its intersecti=on
with the petiole. These get to perhaps 1/4 inch in size and mostly just s=it
there until the leaf begins to age and break up. At this stage I remove t=he
bulbil and  plant it either in the same pot or another. Just push the
bulbil into the soil surface. Each will grow into a new plant eventually.

Since P. cordata seems reluctant to make seed, this is an easy wa=y
to propagate this plant.
