Spiny Softshell Turtle

Is it okay to seat common weeds in a tank of spiny softshell turtles?

I have heard that plants can add more oxygen in an aquarium environment and ultimately lead to increased water quality and a turtle happier. But I have no money now to buy the specified "Aquarium plants." So how ordinary garden weeds do in my aquarium? Soft shell are strict carnivores and I'm not at all worried that my turtle will consume these plants and die for them. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

I do not only because if they were ever sprayed with herbicides and fertilized and placed in the water can be harmful to the turtle.
