Alum for killing snails

Hi after researching online I decided to purchase Alum to dip my plants to kill any snails before putting them in my aquarium.

I thought what I needed to purchase was 'Aluminium Sulphate' so I ordered this product from Amazon since it was cheap.

However, I then discovered that what people were calling 'Alum' was actually 'Potassium Aluminum Sulphate' rather than just 'Aluminium Sulphate'.

Can someone please tell me if the chemical I purchased will treat the snails the same as Potassium Aluminium Sulphate, or should I return the item and purchase Alum using Potassium Aluminium Sulphate?
