Quarantining plants/plant dip suggestion

Gage6

So after buying plants several times from my lfs without issue of any pests, I recently delt witha hydra and damsel fly nymph problems that caused a complete take down of a very well established tank. So rather than playing Russian roulette from now on, I’m definitely going to be taking extra precautions than just a rinse of the plants and then putting them in the tank. I’ve always quarantined fish but never plants as issues never arised. If anyone has any suggestions for plants dips, that would be appreciated! (specifically vallisneria/moss safe as I know they are quite delicate)

cheers,
Gage

Alum works well with delicate plants. 3 Tbls to gallon of water soak overnight. In the spice isle at the grocery store.
