Bent/broken leaves near base

Hello SouthPark,

yes apologies - an accordion/folding fan pattern/shape (in my language you call an accordion the pull harmonica, so my mind blanked on this one :-) ).

Maybe it really is due to leaves getting stuck together and both growing at different rates. If not concerned about the shape, then I'm thinking it's fine to just let the plant grow like that.
yes this is my thinking as well - I am not a neat freak if the plan it happy, then that is what matters... what I am afraid of is if I have somehow created this situation for the plant and how I can remedy it - tearing out a leaf while growing is probably not part of nature's design I am guessing... have you had this happen?

I have 4-5 new growths on my other cym (the one with the originally bent leaves with one coming off), so I will watch that one for signs of trouble... this seems to happen only on the big growts, the small ones where the leaves separate while still pretty small are completely fine...

to all who read please speculate what to look for, do, etc. I have searched and searched and cannot find any information on this behavior. (might be just my search skills ;-) ).
