Jungle Val QT

I just made my first visit to a very well kept LPS. I went to get jungle val, so i grabbed some and took it home. At the store, the tanks are all on individual systems. The tank that my plant came from had baby ramshorns and shrimp well as duckweed. I do not care if any of these make it into my tank. I would actually welcome it. So my question is, do I have to quarantine it, or can I just throw it in?

I personally don't QT my plants.

If I want to be picky, I'll quarantine my plants for a few days so I can catch any live snails that might have been around. I'll also carefully inspect every inch of the plant for egg sacks and remove them. Of course, there's a good chance you'll miss something, but at least you start off with less. Some people QT plants longer to be more careful, but you have to be able to keep the plant healthy during that time. I don't want another tank set up for just plants, so I usually just QT for a few days max before moving to the intended tank.
