Hydrogen Peroxide

Post  toddvol on 4/16/2012, 9:16 pm

I started my 1st SFG a week or so ago and after a few days immediately lost four cucumber transplants. Before reading the forum, I went a bought four more replacements and planted them. They too started to look sick.

So I searched the forum and learned that cucumber transplants do poorly compared to seeds. I also found the information on Hydrogen Peroxide mixed with water. I immediately mixed up 1/2 cup of 3% H2O2 with a gallon on water. I'm impressed! I've watered twice in that last four days with the mix and the cucumbers look extremely healthy now! Last cucumbers would have done been dead by now.

What does H2O2 do for them? I'm glad you are seeing some success!

Could it have been they were simply in shock? When you pulled them, were the roots dead? I've replanted a number of things, had it go into shock (a dead faint, as I call it). I give them a hair cut (remove the wilted leaves, leaving any new growth that may show) and let them recover.

It's worked like a charm so far!

The H2O2 mixed with water is like rainwater. It also removes the chlorine from tap-water.

I found the below information on another site. I won't post the link because I'm not sure if links are allowed on this forum.

"Peroxide works by releasing oxygen. It acts as an oxygen supplement for
plants. It seems to really support both good health and strong growth
for plants"

Evidently hydroponic growers rely on H2O2 too.

to the forum!

In about 5 days you'll be able to post links.

One work around is to NOT post the header "www." Readers can cut & paste.

Great to know about removing chlorine.
