Mother In Law’s Tongue
My snake plant has 3 shoots. On the biggest, fullest one in the center has a clump of new growth and with it at the base of the new growth it has little nubby looking roots. What does it mean and what do I need to do if anything?

This is just the nature of the plant. Every leaf, include severed leaf tips are designed to become its very own plant.
If you would like a new plant, then take a leaf and make sure to get some of the root portion at the bottom. Pot this up, and care for it as usual and it will become its own plant, eventually.
If you do not want more of these, (They can stack up on you if you let them) then leave them as they are. They will not harm the plant, nor really do anything unless they are planted, or covered in soil.

@BushDoctor Can I cut it under the root nubs and plant it that way? Or will it have to be a leaf?
