What's up with my Java Fern?

Hey guys...trying to figure out what is going on with my Java Fern. It almost looks like the leaves are sprouting new plants off of them. Is this what java fern does? Here are some pics, couldnt get them to come out very well:







Any ideas? What should I do?

Thanks!

I know Java fern will produce plantlets on the end of their leaves but from that picture I honesty dont know if that is what is happening. From that pic it almost looks like some type of algae but I could be wrong.

That was my thought as well at first. The bottom 2 pics were the first thing I saw and that looked like algae, but then I saw the other side and what looks like the base of the main plants and I was confused...

Those are adventitious plants forming. The fuzzy dark bits are the roots. They tend to be very slow, so you should leave them for a while. Eventually you can remove the plantlets and plant as new plants, or leave them.
