Odd plant growth

So I go some rotala wallichii and its growing but i accidently uprooted some the other night and noticed there are no roots. How is this plant growing with no roots? I've noticed various other stem plants do this as well.

Most stem plants are very adept at pulling all the necessary nutrients they need from the water column.. Typically they will grow roots, but it takes time and depends how often you top them.
