Give the plantlets time to grow some leaves and roots. You can then remove them and anchor them where you would like them to grow.

I suppose wait until you can handle them, to attach them to drift wood, or a rock etc... or, if you find they make your plant look ugly...
You can just run your fingers down the leafs over a small plastic tub to remove them. If you want to keep some to add to your main tank, try using a 13w compact flourescent desk lamp over the tub until they grow bigger.

You can remove them manually and plant in a new spot.
It is best to wait until the daughters (that is what you call the baby plants growing on the leaves) unattach themselves from the mother plant.

Thank you everybody! This is very helpful. My five gallon that I was talking about earlier has 15 watts of light on it. Is this good for them? I know it's lowlight, I just didn't know if it had different requirements for the daughter plants to grow faster, etc.

The daughters will grow in very lowlight also, just not as fast.
