How to treat a new plant?

Hi everyone,

I just wonder what is the best way to treat the new plant when you buy from other seller before you intro into your fish and/or shrimp tank? Any advice? Thanks

Quarantine in a clear plastic container or a small aquarium with a light source for a few days. Gives you time to see if there's any hitchhikers or hard to deal with algae on the plants. Hydrogen peroxide dips work for algae and potassium permanganate kills most critters and stains snail eggs brown so they're easier to scrape off.
