Anacharis growing string-like offshoot
My Anacharis plants are starting to grow these string-like runs off the main stem after 5 days in the water with the roots submerged in sand. I thought I read that these are just new roots growing, but the few places I was reading didn't have pictures to confirm this. My Anacharis are also growing actual leafed runs as well, so I'm assuming these are what I can cut off and plant individually. As for the stringy offshoots, what are they?
I only have 1 5500k t8 bulb, but am using a liquid plant grow formula. I'm installing a CO2 diffuser today as well.
I was going to pick up another bundle of this stuff at the LFS this weekend, but if it sprouts itself this quickly I will just start replanting its own roots. This is one quick growing plant!

yup, they're roots reaching down searching for substrate to dig into. Anacharis is not a root feeder, so it really doesn't matter how you plant it, or if you even plant it at all.300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids

Ok great, that's exactly what I figured. Now does this mean that the plant is healthy and ready to keep growing? Or does this mean the plant is malnourished and searching for more nutrients?
