Re: [APD] sword root tabs -- or- Poking at substrates

Nail on the head, Jerry. Submerged, nutirents can be all around but CO2 can be hard to find. In the air, CO2 is plentiful but ya gotta dig deep for the other stuff. Two very diff situations from a feeding standpoint.
I think perhaps the somewhat psuedonymonous Mark R was suggesting that I would be inconsistent in my views. To assume he meant otherwise would mean that got me remarks completely backwards.

I would imagine that they need substrate fertilization when they are 
terrestrial since they're kind of limited to absorbing nutrients that 
way. Something about nitrate and ammonium not being easy to get into 
solution with air.
