Default Amazon Sword......?

Got a new plant a little while ago, Amazon sword. Was told about reproducing
in about a 20 second speech on care.

I now have a "sprout", shooting 2" out of the water, and I remember
something she said (woman at the lfs) about weighing it down in the
substrate to form another plant. Like I said, it was a fast speech, the girl
no longer works there. Now I have this beautiful Amazon with a sprout poking
out of the aquarium. I could prune, but wondering about these flowers I hear
about, and reproducing plants, etc.,

Cheers

Most likely flowers, and after the flowers, most likely new plants
will start at each point where there was a flower. No need to do
anything immediate, let it bloom and enjoy that, when that gets old
tuck the stalk back under the water.
