You should always at least rinse your plants to remove any left over copper residue from whereever you ordered them from. Many places these days treat their plants to a copper treatment before they send them to you. Thanks for the warning, huh?!crazie.eddie said:When ever you bring new live plants in, you should either perform a 2-3 minute bleach solution (unscented bleach and water) or soak them in a strong solution of PP (potassium permaganate) for about 15-20 minutes. Which ever method you use, rinse the plants in water and then soak them in a container with dechlorinator for about 10 minutes. This will nuetralize the bleach or PP.
