Should I trim waterborne roots?

I have some Hygrophila difformis (Wisteria) and BACOPA MONNIERI (moneywort) that are growing well but they grow roots way above the gravel line. I have some roots coming out of shoots at the 9" or higher mark. Is it ok to cut these roots off or should I leave as is? Thanks

If its bothering you then cut them, the plant will be fine. Otherwise let them be. In my experience they just grow back anyways.
