You live in Missouri. I live in the state of despair.
This is what I do when I collect plants from a nearby reservoir.
I choose plants with no algae growing on them.
I inspect them for snails and snail eggs, remove them on location back into the water.
some certain types I might keep, no pond snails though.
Look for other critters and suspect egg cases and remove as needed.
I don't harvest that much so it's not a chore.
I also give a second tepid tap water rinse off at home beside the one on location
I've never had a problem and have not introduced disease.
P.S. I've had a planted tank since 1984.
