Merry Xmas!
Hopefully I am posting this message in the correct section

Lately my plants have been shooting roots a whole lot. My pennyworts, Red Ludwigia, Temple Plants, and Anacharis are developping new roots everywhere. Sometimes from under leaves right at the top.

Is this normal??? Or a sign that something is wrong???

This has been discussed quite a bit on different boards, and to my knowledge a good explanation wasn't found. Some think that nutrient imbalance could play a role. I noticed that this happens to a much higher extend when stem plants start to grow in a more horizontal fashion for whatever reason.

I wouldn't say something is wrong, and I wouldn't consider it a problem, other than aesthetically...
