Plants need heater?

I thought the heater was only for fish comfort.

But what about plants? I'm sure they would like warm water, but how much do they like it?

How much does water temperature affect plants? Growth? Health?

Please help shed any experiences.

Higher temps will increase metabolic rates therefore more growth.
