Anacharis growing?

So I just found a long white string on one of my Anacharis it seems like a stem of the plant is it growing is is it something bad?

Edit: It was not there last night.

sounds like it is letting down roots, it can also be planted in substrate, and grows well both floating and planted.

If it is solid white it is probably root.

It's just the roots, no worries. Mine do this a lot, especially if they start folding over at the surface.

They are normally on top floating but the ones with the root are all sinking.
