Crypt Propagation

Hi Everyone,

I have a curiosity to report.  Awhile back (about 2 1/2 months ago) I
bought a crypt, C. balansea.  I planted it and it's rather long roots in
the gravel of my tank.  A short time later I noticed redish leaves popping
up approximately 2 inches away from the original plant.  Also, they were
growing in sort of a line.  Now I have approximately 5 baby crypts in
addition to the mom crypt.  I assume the babies grew from the undergravel
roots.  Has anyone else noticed this behavior with crypts?
