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.

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.
