    How Do I apply Hydrogen Peroxide?

    Hydrogen peroxide is beneficial as an addition to nutrient feeding programs at all times. It feeds the good aerobic bacteria and kills the bad anaerobic bacteria. It also introduces radical oxygen atoms which oxidize elements, making them more available for the roots to assimilate. I apply 3% H2O2 at a rate of 30ml/gallon to the reservoir. The plants show no visible signs of stress afterwards, which indicates that it was not an excessive application.

    Sprouting Seeds: add 30ml 3% H2O2 to 1 pint of water. Soak the seeds overnight.
    Insecticide Spray: combine 250ml 3% H2O2 to 1 gallon spray mix.
    Fast growing container plants: add 30ml of 3% H2O2 to 1 gallon water.
    Hydroponics: apply 3% H2O2 at a rate of 30ml/gallon to the nutrient reservoir.

    Not unless you need it. Never add anything without reason. And I would never set up my reservoir more than a day ahead of time. What's a back up reservoir? Never had enough room to allow one of those.

    Thanks for the reply Racefan The backup reservoir is where you would store 25 or 30 gallons of RO water with no nutes for flushing every 1 or 2 weeks. Racefan, What did you mean when you said " I would never set up my reservoir more than a day ahead of time " ?

    How much is too much might be a better question. There are least a couple different percentages and mixtures used by growers.

    After reading several online pages and other assorted posts I went out and bought some 35% hydrogen peroxide.

    I will use on the low side because of lack of understanding so far of the whole process.

    I use mine in an ebb and flow table.

    I dont know about Hydrogen Peroxide, but I do know that a baking soda solution kills powdery mold. It worked for me.

    Yes it will, and it works very well..
    1 cup Hydrogen Peroxide
    4 gallons water
    A big enough container .

    put the plant upside down and stir it in the solution. swoosh it around for 2-5 minutes and then hit the plant with a fan. I did this with a white widow in BLOOM haha. Worked out perfect. Go to youtube and search for jorge cervantez . Dude is amazing.

    To control PM get better control on the enviornment. Yep a fan helps and so does a dehumidifier but it still comes. The key is to stop it before it gets out of control.

    Spider mites are easy to take care of. Just use hot shot strips....agout 1 every 3 plants...durring liughts out...with no exhaust fans running for about 8 hours...all mites will be dead. Repeate in 4-5 days.
