Question First planted tank

Hi all, here are some photos of my first planted tank just setup in the last couple of weeks. The first strange behavior I see is what seems like roots coming down from the stems of most of the plants. These were not there when I bought them, but have developed recently. What am I looking at? (Tank details in my profile)

looks like a great start! everything looks very healthy. those are lateral roots, a good sign that the plants are growing
