Plantlets on Java fern

Recently, a number of the Java ferns in my 15-gallon tank have begun
producing plantlets on the undersides of the leaves. While I am glad to have
a source of a few extra plants, I don't really need as many as are growing
at present, and the developing roots are not attractive (to my eye, at
least). I have two questions: (1) Do certain water conditions stimulate the
development of plantlets, or is this simply what mature Java fern leaves do?
(2) Is it possible to remove the plantlets without destroying the parent
leaf? Thanks for any insights you might be able to give.
