Amazon Sword sprouts
Iv had my tank up and running for a while with a full grown amazon sword in it. About 3 months ago the amazon sword sprouted a vine kinda thing from its base and on the vine has grown 3 small swords.
Do i leave them on there until the detach like a java fern? or should i plant them? And if i should plant them, how do i separate them from the vine and plant.
Thanks for your time
P.S. sorry if this is in the wrong topic, idk what kind of plant swords are

The term for that is a runner, which is how sword plants spread. You can cut the runner when each daughter sword plant has at least six leaves and replant them where you want them.
Sword plants are rosette plants, botanical-wise.
