Default mites killing my plants!?!

two weeks ago, i bought a lot of plants at a local nursery for my new vivarium i am setting up. i noticed this week that some of the plants aren't doing so good (they are still in their original pots waiting to be planted). i took a closer look to see some tiny mite looking insects crawling on the soil. i have seen these on my bonsai trees before and they have nearly killed several of my trees. i usually break out the garden pesticide, but i can't do that to plants intended on going in my vivarium.
i have run some soapy water through the infected plants but im not entirely convinced it will work (in fact, it hasnt). i do not want to accidentally put a pest into my vivarium that will kill the plants. this is extremely frustrating since i had hoped to plant the vivarium this weekend. any suggestions?
the plants are as follows:
cyclamen hederifolium "cyclamen",
ploystichum polyblepharum "tassel fern",
athyrium "japanese painted fern"

Thanks, ~Lauren
