Plant Sprouts :D

Hi guys.

I have several El Nino Ferns in a few of my tanks. On all of them little sproutlings are growing on the tips of the leaves! I was wondering how I can safely remove and replant the sprouts and when/if I can. Thanks.

try cutting one at a 45 degree angle and then "floating" it using fertilized pristine water to see if you get some root growth

Well that's the weird part... Most of the sprouts have grown substantially and they already have roots, one growing up to an inch long. They still are attached to the plant though. I was wondering how I could cut them off without killing them
