Q.Can I Propagate Tricolor Stromanthe “babies” Growing On Tall Stalks?

My tricolor stromanthes are growing outside in Brooksville FL . They not only produce blooms in Spring, they also produce tall stalks with what looks like baby plants at the top. Can I propagate these?

It looks like a proliferation. Daylilies do this by producing babies on the scape. You can leave it awhile and see if roots develop before you cut it off and plant it. If not, you can cut a few inches above and below the "baby" and root it in potting soil just like other cuttings.
