    I was wondering if there`s any link between plants putting out aerial roots because we provide the ferts in the water colomn and they don`t have the choice. If we fertilized the substrate, would we see less aerial roots?

    I have a soil-based tank that doesn't receive any dosing. It has a large growth of hygrophila polysperma with almost no aerial roots. That would seem to support your theory.
