Re: preventive solution


Gunnar: Potassium permanganate (KMnO4) has been used in the past as a
treatment for bacterial soft rot.  The concentration, if memory serves me, is
1 part permanganate to 1000 parts water.  Do not use warm or hot water to
make the solution. It is difficult to see when the permanganate has dissolved
because of the deep color of the solution.  Exercise extreme caution with its
use because it is poisonous. Just went back and  read your question again.  I
would not recommend using permanganate solution as a regular practice. Your
best solution would be to identify the problem and then use a
substance/preparation/chemical specific for that problem.
