Quarantine of Plants After Fish Death

So, I lost a DT a few days ago who had a few clumps of live java fern in with him. I believe he died of a fungal issue that I tried to treat too late. So, my question is: How long should I quarantine these plants? Is there anything special I should do with them while in quarantine before I think of adding them to another fish's tank? Should they be quarantined individually, or can they be with other plants (that weren't in the tank with the dead fish)?

I would try 2 weeks. I'm going to monitor this thread, because I have some plants I want to transfer to the girls tank but I need to clean the live plants & refasten them to the wood.

How much java fern do you have?

Mine are looking HORRIBLE, but that's due to the lack of lighting they receive.

I had 4 bunches of java fern in with the fish that died, and at one point I had two things of dwarf hairgrass and some microsword. I've got those in quarantine with a bunch of new plants, and was planning on keeping them in there until my 10 gallon cycled (which its not even close, last I checked). They've been in there almost one week so far.
