I thought my sword was blooming, but it seems to be making new plants. Both of my swords are shooting these toward the surface and out of the water. My question is, what do I do with these? Do I wait a little while and cut them under the roots? I have no where to replant them, so they'll have to be sold or given away.

It should grow to the surface. If you want to grow a new plant once it appears to have a set of leafs bend the baby down to the substrate keeping the stalk attached to the mother plant and it should take root.

They do that pretty commonly. If the runner grows out of the tank it will produce flowers. There's probably some variation, but all the sword flowers I've had were white with yellow centers and about 1" across.
