I like the plastic plant and/or fake corals, fake rock. When you tear down the QT you can sterilize these items for next time.

if there is a chance a parasite/bacteria/virus could lay dormant in the rock between uses, even out of water.
What parasite/virus/baceria could live out of water for any length of time. A few days maybe, but weeks or months?

I should have added that if you are putting a piece of base rock in your qt and your fish become ill. It would not only need to be removed, but IMO discarded. Thats why I like the plastic plants, you can clean and reuse them.
