Java Fern Help

Im at the stage of my planted aquarium where im ready to clone some java fern.

Their got a main stem which is now reaching the top of my tank and growing roots at each intersection of the stem now. should i shorten the stem down to the second intersection and only use the top of the plant or should i remove the whole stem and use all 5 of them.

The pic isnt the best but those who know java fern will see it

That's not a java fern. It looks like a sword runner. Weigh the runner down and the daughter plants will take root.

If they have roots developing you can cut them and replant them. If not then use a rock or the sand to hold them down until they grow roots.
