I did some research when I got ich in my plant tank back in March.  Malachite
green does not contain copper and the consensus is it is reasonablely plant
safe.  I did not lost any plant during the treatment.

You can read about my ich outbreak in my page:


I also have a list of plants I have so those plants should be okay (except
E. tellenus, H. leucocephala and H. colorita, they were not in my tank
during the treatment).
