Ok, what should I do, leave the rockwool on my plant and just disinfect it then plant it in my tank? Or should I take the rock wool off? I purchased Dwarf Hair Grass, so if I indeed should remove the rock wool it is going to be difficult to remove the roots. Yanno? It seems hard, maybe it's easy...just please let me know thanks!

What's rock wool?? If its an algae I'm not familiar with that name. Regardless you should remove all algae before putting it into a new tank so it doesn't spread

It just clicked what your talking about, try to remove as much of that crap as possible. I get a deep pan and fill it with water and just take your time picking it off as best as you can

Here you go Ryan, its the yellow sponge stuff. Aquatic plant cultivators will plant a small amount in the center and let it grow, its a bitch to remove

Horrible stuff. It's often laced with fertiliser that releases into your water column... algae for everyone!

Much better to plant into a good plant substrate, or into a little plant pot with soil, capped with gravel/sand.
