      Question What's the best way to clean plants from other ponds

      I just grabbed a large amount of hyacinths from a sweet gentleman on Facebook marketplace. I'd like to clear them of any parasites, fungus or things like that before adding to my pond. I put them in a big plastic bin with water and added proform C. Is there anything else I can/should do to make sure I don't introduce anything nasty to my fish? I can do more Proform C or Dimillin (for possible lice). Lmk your thoughts and advice please.
      Thanks
      Tanya

      I soak aquatic plants in a strong solution of potassium permanganate. Kills everything bad and does not hurt the plants.
