Rotting leaves and algae

I am wondering if nutrients released by rotting leaves can contribute to
algae blooms ("green water"). I have some ill cabombas and while I try to
nurse them back to health they are loosing some leaves and despite my best
efforts I cannot remove all the dead leaves from the tank. Could this be
part of the explanation for a sudden burst of algae growth?
