Nutrient uptake


I have read that aquatic plants can take in nutrients both through their
leaves and roots.  These varies for different plant species.  I am quite
new in keeping plants in my tanks.  Can anyone advice me which plants uses
their leaves and which uses their roots for nutrient uptake?

In the APD, I have read about adding nutrients to the water.  Is that alone
sufficient?  Or do I need to fertilise the substrate too?
