Strange leaf on Limnophila aquatica

The two plants were introduced to this tank a week ago, but three days ago, it started to develop this strange leaf on top of the plant. My guess is that it's the emerged form, but I don't understand why it would appear when the plant is still a foot from water surface. Is there any reason for this, and is this a sign of problem?

Strange maybe the plant is just a bit confused?

The plant was probably exposed to a lot of air before you put it into the tank. Hence the emergent growth. Trim those leaves and leave the submersed leaf. New growth will be submersed-looking.

Thank you. I have trimmed the leaves. Will report back in a few days.
