Hydrogen peroxide 11.9%.

This solution will add extra oxygen to a mineral nutrient solution, increasing nutrient uptake by the roots and supercharging growth. With regular use it will combat diseases like Pythium. In between crops it can be used at a higher dose to clean equipment.

Why should you use Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) in hydroponics?

  • Oxygenation: Hydrogen peroxide can be used to increase oxygen levels in the hydroponic solution. Plants need oxygen for their roots to function properly. By adding hydrogen peroxide, it releases oxygen molecules into the solution, which helps to oxygenate the root zone and prevent oxygen deprivation. This can be particularly useful in systems with inadequate oxygenation, such as deep water culture or nutrient film technique setups.
  • Root health: Hydrogen peroxide can help promote root health by preventing and treating root rot and other root-related issues. It has antimicrobial properties and can effectively combat pathogens like pythium and other harmful microorganisms that can attack the roots. A diluted hydrogen peroxide solution can be applied as a root drench or added to the hydroponic system to inhibit the growth of harmful organisms and maintain a healthy root environment.
  • Algae control: Algae growth can be a common issue in hydroponic systems, especially in nutrient-rich environments with ample light. Hydrogen peroxide can be used to control algae growth. It acts as an algaecide and helps prevent the formation of algae blooms that can compete with plants for nutrients and block light from reaching the roots. By using hydrogen peroxide in controlled amounts, you can effectively manage algae growth and maintain a clean hydroponic system.

It’s important to note that hydrogen peroxide should be used with caution and in appropriate concentrations. Overuse or using too high a concentration can harm plants and beneficial microorganisms in the hydroponic system. It’s recommended to follow specific guidelines and consult reliable sources when using hydrogen peroxide in hydroponics.
