ICH in my planted tank

Greetings. I have a question for the group. I have a 10 gallon tank that I have been keeping some extra plants in. Along with those plants I have a group of 12 Rummy Nose Tetras. About a month ago I noticed some ICH on two of the tetras. I immediately treated for the ICH and it seems to be completely gone...was gone in the first week. I lost one fish but other than that, no problems

The question is...I want to move some of the plants from that tank into one of my other tanks. Is there any danger of moving any of the ICH to the other tank? I haven't seen any sign of the ICH for several weeks and the fish are all acting healthy. Is there something I should do to the plants before I put them in the other tank? I know the ICh has a short life span when its in the water and has to attach itself to a fish to survive and I haven't seen any signs of that. I've done numerous water changes and followed all of the treatment protocols as far as I know. I just don't want to chance infecting another tank?

Thoughts on this?
