Amazon Sword propogation

Hello, I am new to the planted tank world (about 6 months) and still
stocking my tank.  Last week I purchased a potted amazon sword, which
included a long stalk (8-10") with three groups of nodules along its
length.  Now I have new leaves (1-1.5") growing out of those nodules, which
is good <g>, but I don't know how to handle the daughter plants to separate
and re-plant them.  

At what stage/size/time should the stalk be cut off and planted, and should
the three nodules be separated, or left to grow along the continuous stalk?

Thank you in advance for your help.
