Those roots aren't from the main sword; that's a runner stem that plantlets will grow off of and develop their own roots. When the roots grow out a couple inches, you can carefully remove the daughter plants and replant them. Try not to wait too long or you'll end up with this:

That's two runners from a single amazon sword with probably 20+ 6" daughter plants that stretched all the way across my 4' 90g tank.
