    hi there
    i found hydrogen peroxide in a few stuff ive read and decided to try it out. yes the regular stuff for cuts but make sure its 3%. i used a very small ratio - a few drops /litre.
    my clones grew roots within days. seedlings also. as far as im concered hydrogen peroxide has an unstable oxygen molecule, and i found it beneficial for developing healthy root systems.
    make sure not to use too much, i dont know what could happen... but a few drops diluted in water wont cause any harm, try it out.

    It is also used to kill any bacteria and to help prevent mold.

    Im a new grower myself and not using the best equipment but it gets the basics of growing down. I have used hydrogen peroxide at 3% as a half and half with purified water to start germinating seeds in root plugs. I have found it to more than triple my root mass compared to just water alone. Even at a half and half dilution the stuff you get at wal-greens is 97% purified water anyway so I have yet to see an over peroxide application problem. I cant really utilize any beneficial bacteria because of it, but for stimulating root growth I will continue to use it and swear by it from a newbies standpoint.
