Will Adding Salt to Tank Hurt Plants?

My female Ram is sick, not sure what is wrong with her, but was advised by a few people to add Melafix along with Aquarium Salt to the tank. Will this hurt my plants, if I only add it once? I was told to add 1 tablespoon for each 5 gallons of water, it also says this on the box of Aquarium Salt. I am worried about my Ram but do not want to hurt my plants either. If salt will kill my plants, I will do a water change right away.

Please advise, anyone tried this?
