Clean plants from cladophora with heavy circulation?

A couple of months ago i put 3 plants in a container with lots of circulation, more then 50x the volume and a fineparticlelfilter, then i planted the plants in a bucket with some gravel and a miniature filter and fertilizers.

The cladophora is nowhere to be seen today in the bucket and all 3 plants have grown new leafs, would you say the plants are clean from cladophora or?

yes i believe they are, i have had to do the same thing in one of my tanks and just pointed the powerhead i had at them and they seems to melt right off. But that still doesn't fix your underlined cause of why it sprung up anyway..i have the same problem i am dealing with in my tank except it is trying to take over my whole tank, and its been running for years now ugh..but i find that Nitrates are the problem when dealing with BGA. lots of water changes and reduce feeding or the stock of fish in your tank if possible. i have done the same in my tank but still its killing just do a little research and keep up on the tank changes and you should be fine..and yes those plants should be clean now since they were taken out of the environment.
