Plant Soaked in Bromothymol Blue Safe for Tank?

I have a friend who loves science. This week she did an experiment involving putting a strand of Elodea in Bromothymol Blue for about a week. I asked for the piece after she was finished because hey, free aquarium plant! Anyways, is it safe to put it in my tank? I plan on soaking it for a few days just in case but does anyone know if the Bromothymol Blue would leech out of the plant into the water? And if so, how toxic is Bromothymol Blue to fish? Any answers will be appreciated!

It’s toxicity to fish is pretty low, id definitely do like you said and soak and repeatedly rinse it before you put it in the tank. But unless it was literally dripping in the stuff or it’s going into a 2gal tank I don’t see it being an issue
