Pygmy Chain Sword Side Shoots

I have some pygmy chain sword side shoots that are still connected to the plant. Should I cut the shoots or let them grow? There are a few plants with shoots and one even has three new plants growing off it. Will cuttting or not cutting the shoots effect the growth rate? I have lots of bare space that needs filling so I need them to grow fast.

Just let them grow and they will fill in. I know it is a different plant, but when I wanted my Dwarf sag to get going, I placed a few root tabs around them and they got going. Be careful of what you wish for.
