This is difficult to answer with any degree of certainty. I don't know where you live, and even if I did I wouldn't know what "stuff" may be in the native waters. As Mikaila wisely cautioned previously, bringing plants (or items like wood, rock, fish) from native waters carries a risk. I recall comments from Rhonda Wilson, a planted tank authority who writes in TFH regularly, that any treatment likely to be successful at killing algae, snails or parasites in plants would have to be so strong that it would almost always harm the plant too. Under certain circumstances I too might try what you are suggesting, but know that it is a risk. Plants acquired from a store or online are raised in aquatic nurseries, and while they can (if kept in tanks with fish in the store) harbour parasites like ich, that can at least be dealt with easily (quarantine in a fishless tank for 2 weeks). The unknown is different.
