I've never stopped to consider what percent of Hydrogen peroxide I
actually end up with when I mix the zerotol material in water. I am
using the medium rate as recommended by the Manufacturer, Biosafe
Systems,[to be found at <biosafesystems.com> on the net], which is
approximately 1.25 ounces of a 27% solution of Hydrogen dioxide
(Zerotol) to 132 ounces(one gallon) of water. By my calculations it is
approximately a 0.26 % solution, less than one tenth of a 3% solution.
Maybe my calculations are not correct. I would think that it is possible
that 3% might be to strong and could posssibly kill the plants as well
as disinfecting the rooting media.
