Water Sprite Dropping Leaves

My tank seems to be thriving, but my water sprite started to drop leaves all of a sudden and I'd like to figure out why. I'm wondering if the java fern next to it might be crowding it, or if there's something else going on.

The plants did have a bit of a temperature shock a week or two ago (I left a heater unplugged by mistake for a day) but while a couple of plants dropped a few leaves, everything else seems to have bounced back.

You can see the water sprite stems on the right of the picture here (next to the very happy java fern):

A closeup of some of the leaves that haven't dropped yet, but look like they're about to:

Thanks in advance for any help, I have a bit of a brown thumb.
