Life expectancy of flourite

Thanks for the suggestions I've gotten off-list, for how to prevent my stem
plants from sending off so many roots -- special thanks to Carlos Munoz!

Anyway, one suggestion I got was that the stem plants might not be getting
enough nutrients from the substrate, and that I might want to add some clay
at the roots, as well as Jobe's sticks.  Shouldn't a flourite substrate be
sufficient (I set up the tank 7 or 8 months ago), or could it be depleted?

I'd rather avoid adding clay balls, because I'm a fickle decorator, and I
like to rearrange the plants in my tank every few months.  I'll lose half
the clay if I pull up the crispus...
