plants growing in between glass and substrate

hey guy I am wondering if anyone could tell me if it is generally okay to be shoving the plant between substrate and glass (sand cap and soil and clay bottom) i like to see the roots growing, they don't grow as fast as when it is surrounded with substrate this could be a coincidence?

Thank you

Well if the plants are carpeting type like Glosso, Dwarf Hairgrass, etc, then they will inevitably push up against the glass unless you are able to block them. Now as far as you intentionally doing so and having a soil and clay bottom, just watch out for soil and clay seeping through to the water column.
