I got a Marsilea quadrifolia... now what?

I just started up a new plant tank and at the store where work they got in a potted Marsilea quadrifolia that was part of an assorted plant shipment. (I have been trying to get this plant in for a while but it wasn't on the lists for some reason) The plant was in bad shape, most of the large leaves were brown, but there is a lot of new growth with new fronds at the base... I read that it grows completely differently submerged, what should I do with it now. Should I take it from the plant? I read that I may have to take the rhizomes and cut them into small plantlets… how should I do this, by the large clover shaped leaves, even if the clover isn’t there anymore?

I have had this plant in stock for months!!! You should have contacted me!!!! Anyway, I usually just plant the whole group together, I wrap a few weights around it until it takes root. It should send out runners rather quickly. Give it good light and nutrients and it will grow like crazy!!!!
