Continue to let this sword grow this way or not?

I was wondering if I need to continue to let this "plantlet" grow this way or not? It wasn't gotten any taller then what it is now. The first plantlet has about 5 leaves on it now and also about 4 roots growing now.The stock continues to go up to another spot that has about 3 leaves and so on. It does this about 4 times. The first one is the only one that has about 5 leaves and some roots. Does this make sense? Do I need to wait till it gets alittle bigger? Also how do I plant it if it needs to be? Basically asking what do I do and how to do it? Thanks and here are some pictures.Not the best in the world though.

I'd let them get a bit larger.

Another alternative would be to weigh the stem down beside each plantlet, so the plantlets are touching the substrate. Might make them root a bit faster, especially if you have an enriched substrate.
