Java Fern

My java fern is starting to throw shoots off the leaves. It's the weirdest thing I have ever seen. Is this normal? I'll take some pics when I get home tonight.

oh its normal! It is about to have some daughter plants! ( I LOVE java fern....) if you let it be it will keep growing till its a nice java fern then when its a good size you can "pick" it off and plant it! (on a rock or wood or in the subtrate..some ppl say dont plant in subtrate but mine are growing like mad in the subtrate!)

Thanks! They have tons of roots coming off right now. They have been like this for 3 weeks. I think I'll pick some off tonight and replant in my 30 gallon.
