Hey so my large Java ferns are reproducing like crazy all the big leaves have the little leaves and roots at the ends on them which I have been taking off and super gluing to rocks to replant but it seems like all the big leaves from the original Fern die after the baby plants sprout off of them is this normal will the whole original just die while the baby's take over?

That's an issue I have a lot...what I've heard is it means there isn't enough nutrients in the water to maintain large leaves so the plant just starts off shooting

For me, as the leaf dies its common to send out some babies before dying. It's rather common and is a adaptation to ensure survival.
