This is my amazon sword plant in my 55g rbp tank. What do I do with this shoot thing. It even has roots growing out of some of the leaf bases. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I had the same a while, and there are two options:
- just let it grow: eventually it'll be too heavy to float, and sink. Then it will grow its roots into the gravel. But it will easily be uprooted, since it's still connected to the 'mother plant'.
- cut the new piece off and plant it elsewhere.

btw: it's just a sign your plant is healthy and doing well!

Yeah, I think I'll take snow's advice. I don't know anything about cutting or replanting, so I think I will let it do what it normally would do in nature. We'll see what happens!
