Just want to make sure I am understanding you correctly.
Water Sprite plants will get larger and larger, and daughter plants will appear on (roughly) alternate leaves. The daughter ploants can be gently pulled from the leaf when they have a few leaves and some roots, and left floating on their own.
If you meant break off parts of the parent plant leaves, I'm not sure this will result in new plants. Bits of leaf that have broken off in my tank usually die if I don't remove them.
