Welcome to APC! You have a good supply of growing plants now, so I suggest you just remove them, replace the substrate with something more appropriate and about 1.5 inches deep, then remove the plants from the mineral wool and pots and plant them in the substrate. That won't cost you much, and you will learn a lot so that when you want to get a different tank you will have a much better chance of lasting success.
