Is this necessarily true? I mean, the roots are still taking in nutrients from the water/substrate. To my knowledge, non-rhizome plants don't actually take in nutrients through their leaves. That's why a nutrient-rich substrate can be important in planted tanks. So I would think it would still benefit water quality...at least as much as similar slow-growing plants.
Now, I'm assuming that we're talking about lucky bamboo (Dracaena sanderiana
) here and not actual
