Welcome to APC!
What you see is called fragmentation, a form of asexual reproduction in which small pieces of the plant break off, drift to a new location, and slowly grow into a complete plant. It is reasonably common in aquatic plants, but we often miss it in our aquaria because we tend to clean up all these little bits. It is a pretty tricky dispersal mechanism.
