What to do with the plants of a fish with Ich

I have a fish who got Ich and he had plants in his tank. I moved the plants into a seperate container and I don't know what to do to clean them so they can be safely put in my fish's tank when he's healed.

quarantine them for two weeks... or quarantine them for a day in 90F - 100F water. the second option is better for the plants.

Couldn't say it better. Ich dies after a while without a host or at high temps.

Maracide with Bio-Spheres is good with plants.
