when to remove baby java ferns from leaves

i got some java ferns from petco few weeks back.. have attached them to a big rock, last couple weeks they have been sprouting new little babies on the leaves and growing roots, i have had some new leaves pop up and grown about an inch - inch and a half..

ive no idea how long i wait before i take these new little plantlets off the big leaves and attach them to their own rocks,right now ive got maybe 6 new little plantlets growing, 3 of them have nice leaves coming in and the other have some roots showing..

as for the original big leaves they are growing on,what do i do with these,i take it they are dying if they are giving me new plants,do i just leave them as they are or do i cut all the leaf off and wait for new ones to grow off the root? heres pics
