Question Why are my plants not pearling anymore?

Eversince I added a heater to my planted tank my plants aren't pearling anymore. Is it because heated water doesn't have as many nutrients?
My tank is a ada m with 27 watts of lighting and 1 bubble per 2 seconds co2
with riccia and dwarf hairgrass

gas exchange is better in cold water...both in terms of CO2 dilution (if you injecting) and other gases too...
