If you have an amazon sword with a shoot (like you said) then I would reccomend keeping the plants on the shoot until they are about 1/2 the size at least of the mother plant. You can plant them in your tank and enjoy them! What I would do is cut the plants off (once they are the right size) and get as little of the shoot as possible. Hope this helps!
