Our Plants are imported and may have been treated with pesticides for Snails / Pests. We do soak our plants for a period of time, however we cannot guarantee that they will be 100% Shrimp and Snail Safe. Therefore we advise you wash and soak your plant for a day or two prior to placing it in your tank. Placing your plants in a bucket and dosing some seachem prime is a great way to remove any heavy metals or contaminants.
