I'd say it's an offshoot and that you can propogate BOP through division. Lot's of plants multiply that way. Good time to start a second pot if you felt like it i guess. Here is a link on BOP care. I can't promise the information is legitimate though, gotta love the internet. I would bet my money that you can divide it though and both would live.

Here is a link that might be useful: BOP care

Looks like a Palm seedling to me.

Do you have palm trees around? Or a seed could have fell in the soil at the nursery.
