What you describe sounds like a keiki - a baby plant. When the keiki has developed a few 2-3" long roots you can remove it and pot it up on its own. Slice between the the stem and the keiki, cutting the stem above and below keiki's attachment point. The new plant can now be potted up and grown on, just like the parent plant.
