I have no confidence in the 5% solutions. Why take a chance

John, my concern for solutions stronger than 10% was for the health of the rhizome.  Like others, I sometimes forget to pull the rhizomes out of the solution and have been known to leave some in the solution over night.

I've used the 10% solution for years . . . because it's what I was told early on.  It's good to know that stronger solutions will do no harm.
