    The hygrophilia is quite a fast grower. Take them out of their pots and plant them in your substrate. These leaves will die in the next couple of weeks or so and be replaced by submersed leaves, the sword plant will look very different to how it looks now. when you plant it cut the roots back hard to 20 mm or so remove any damaged or yellowing leaves.
