Hey all,

My amazon sword plant is starting to send off a bunch of runners that have what appear to be a number of new smaller sword plants. I assume the plant is propogating, but I'm not sure what to do about it, if anything.

Should I be cutting these runners off? Will the main plant be harmed if I do?

I'm not really interested in growing any additional sword plants, but I don't want to ruin the established plant.

Once the off-shoot has its own roots you can safely cut it from the main plant. I also cut-off the "stem" at the base of the main plant, too.

Good to know. Thanks everyone. The runners have lots of clumps of leaves, but no roots yet. I'll let them get bigger and then cut them & post them here for cheap.

...and everyone gets in line to be the first to send a PM :)
