Op some photos of your roots would help people help you too. you say a "browning" this could be a stain from nutrients.
These roots right here in this photo are stained(they were also h2o2'd on a regular basis) odd, the plants did fine, as a matter of fact conditions were so extreme (a lot of heat) that I'm surprised they made it let alone turned out like they did, I had one plant go over 12 zips.
Colorado Amendment 20 compliant! I gave up playing guitar to grow weed, I gave up tv to grow weed, I gave up drinking to grow weed, I gave up pussy to grow weed, I started lying to grow weed, I never gave up pussy.
#2 h202 has its place in a grow but not in the soil, at least in the fasion you all seem it sould be used, and i only attacked one member who has a huge history of telling almost every plant problem replies to with h202 man it fixes everything, what i was trying say is its going to do more long term harm then short term benefits
ill try to get a pic up asap
ill put in my hat for h2o2, i think my plants like it alot and it keeps the res way cleaner. + its cheap and available (i use the 3%). and i think you are giving bad advice Drifter... i dont think anyone is putting it in their soil. these are dwc hydro systems.
And i also use a frozen water bottle every once in a while to bring temps down, i dont have a thermometer but they should be cool to the touch. I only use h2o2 when i think things are starting to brown, not as a preventative.
2. What does soil have anything to do with it? And how are we all saying it should be used which is incorrect? If youre going to attack a member for prescribing a solution you believe to be incorrect, why don't you also propose an alternative to the guy asking the question so he isn't lost. He clearly isn't an expert when it comes to this and if you know so much about bennies, why don't you tell him what you actually recommend instead of this:
- wow every post excepct 2 were even close to helping you with your problems, one add a frozen water bottle to stablize res temps, DO NOT USE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE, AND BIGV1976 QUITE TELLING PEOPLE TO USE THE SHIT, its for cleaning it remove skin from your jands what do you think it does toroot tissue, you clearly have no clue what your doing, every time someone has a problem you tell them to use it. Shut the fuck up with your dumb ass advice, ok no back to the OP's problem once you get temps in check bring you microculture up with some inoculants or worm/bat/shroom tea, keep ph @ or around 6.0 your problem will solve itself like nature intended.
You're the reason people are so misinformed, this guy may now think h2o2 is horrible for any use. "Your problem will solve itself." Great advice...
And what are the long term harm h2o2 will cause? Because according to the universe and chemistry, h2o2 breaks down into h2o and O. So it raises the DO content after it breaks down the dead organic matter, leaving water as a byproduct. Is this the long term harm you're talking about? Too much oxygen and water in a hydroponic system...sounds like a rough one.
anyone mention using hygrozyme, its organic and is specifically for keeping your roots healthy and eating away the dead ones plus you can use it with H2o2
ok thanks for all of the tips. How often should I use the H2o2?
Depends. I personally use it as a preventative measure, though numerous people who recommend its use for cleaning and sterilization/treatment don't use it otherwise. Like I mentioned in my earlier post, I personally add a higher concentration when I change my rez, then add a small amount every couple days.
