The stuff in the pot is rockwool. It's not really useful for anything in the tank. It's used for hydroponics, for the roots to grow into. I assume some potted plants are grown emersed hydroponically. I still don't get why jave fern and anubias come potted, I've bought them before and the rhizomes were completely rotten.
