What are the reasons to choose to pot a plant vs putting it in substrate?

I am finishing my book on the "Ecology of the Planted Aquarium". She mentions keeping some plants potted. What would be reasons to keep a plant potted vs putting it in substrate/soil? What are you using for pots? If it's anything specialized where do you buy the pots?

If I remember right, some plants can't be put into the substrate or they will rot. Pots allow them to be anchored to the bottom but not in the substrate.
