What is my Java Fern Doing? o.O

I know plants are supposed to sprout little mini-mes but from the tip of one of the leaves?! What is going on, is my narrow leaf going for some originality or something? It grows like a weed and I count new leaves almost every day that at least double in size every 24 hours but near the bottom of the plant not on pre-existing leaves. Wth is happening!? xD

So do I remove it and put it in the grow out tank? It's so super teeny but omg it's sprouting roots . . . in mid air . . water . . . I am so confused lol it looks parasitic and it's weirding me out because I find it so outlandish.

This is how the java fern makes babies...Wait till it grows in a bit and you can just gently pull it off and then you have a more java fern for your tank

Lol I had the same reaction, also you don't have to pull the little plants off the leaf. I usually just leave mine and someway or another they pop off and establish themselves.

Awesome! :D
My parents explained the birds and the bees to me but never for plants xD
Can't wait to see my little sprout break off, I will be tying it to my driftwood.
