Aragonite as planted tank substrate?

I my 3 gal planted tank I currently have some lose gravel, more so on the larger stone size. I don't like the way this looks, or how the plants grow in it. I have a couple of extra pounds of aragonite left over from when I set up my reef tank. Has anyone used aragonite in their planted tank?
Is it good for plants?

this sand contains buffers that will increase your pH and other levels. your best bet for cheap sand is to pre-rinse play sand really well.
