Sword Plant Unusual Growth

I have never seen swords send leaves to the surface in this manner before. I have had plenty of swords whose leaves reached the surface of a 75 but not usually with stems like flowers. Thoughts?

Thanks
Rob

You have a lotus growing right beside the sword. The leaves at the surface are lotus leaves.

Except I have never had lotus in this tank so unless the lotus was mixed in to the swords root system I am not sure how thats the case. The stems in question seem to be coming up as part of the sword plant as well and the leaves of both are almost identical. There are four swords in close proximity if that is why you came to that conclusion.
