After fighting a camallanus infestation in my 90 gallon, and losing all of my plants and 8 fish in the process, i am ready to start planting again. My problem is how do i keep parasites from hitching a ride on the plants and reinfesting my tank. They came in on some snails last time. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you had a rather bad experience that I think is pretty rare. You could wash them off I guess using a snail-icide, so to speak. I guess they are copper based? Alternatively I would use a different retailer. If really is nearly impossible to get rid of all snails.
