So, you don't think that plants take up dissolved nutrients? Experience
with hydroponics suggests that they do.

You neglect the dynamic nature of soil microflora, which rapidly incorporate
dissolved nutrients into organic matter, transform nutrients via redox
reactions, and release them into the soil solution via degradation of
organic matter. All these things are going on continuously even in the most
barren-looking conventionally farmed soil. You also neglect the dynamic
nature of ion exchange with minerals and organic matter in all but the most
coarse and barren soils.
Also, why do you think that endocytosis is important for nutrient uptake?
