    I think it's just the way a lot of plants like that grow. Bamboo will do this as well, I think it's just to better anchor the plant. In a current (in the wild), that top part could get snagged or ripped off or otherwise damaged if it's not secured. I dontd think it means too much of anything, to be honest, other than it's growing well.

    That's the way Brasilian Pennywort grows.
    Think in nature when parts break of, they'll be able to grow a new plant.

    You can break that piece off and replant it in order to have a new plant. They grow roots that way because they will pull their nutrients from the water column.
