Selected Add-Ons

Growers House Hydrogen Peroxide Liquid Oxygen H2O2 is composed of 34% food-grade hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide has a multitude of benefits in hydroponics grow operations including but not limited to: sterilizer of your growing medium and growing environment, increases germination rates of seeds, encourages vigorous vegetative growth, adds oxygen to your reservoir while killing off harmful bacteria, increases nutrient uptake by plants roots, and it eliminates chlorine in water quicker (great to use with hard water and tap water). More details on how to use H2O2 in the description below. Note: can only be shipped on a pallet due to being a hazmat item.
Description

Hydrogen Peroxide Liquid Oxygen H2O2 is composed of 34% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Use with caution. Keep away from children. This product is excellent for cleaning hydroponic equipment, materials and grow areas. Our bulk 55 gallon drum is filled with 50 gallons of 34% hydrogen peroxide made at the highest quality chemical manufacturing plants in the United States. It is considered unlawful to sell, use or distribute this product in ways other than as claimed.

HOW IS USING HYDROGEN PEROXIDE GOOD FOR MY PLANTS AND GARDEN?

Hydrogen peroxide is one of the simple products out there that is essential in every hydroponics garden. This also means growers using methods that are drain-to-waste in inert growing media such as rockwool or coco coir. Here's a step-by-step guide on how hydrogen peroxide works in your garden:

  1. The molecules break down into water (H2O) and a single oxygen atom (O), a free radical.
  2. This free radical is a very volatile molecule, which can react in many ways.
  3. If it comes into contact with an organic cell, like a bacteria or virus, it oxidizes destroying the bacteria or virus.
  4. If it comes in contact with another oxygen atom, it forms an O2 molecule.
  5. O2 molecules are essential for plant growth and will get absorbed through your plant's roots, aiding in healthy growth.
  6. The whole peroxide molecule also reacts with any free chlorine in water to form O2 and hydrogen chloride, therefore removing chlorine from the system.

So overall, when using hydrogen peroxide in your garden correctly, you're getting a multitude of benefits--you simply can't go wrong. 

WHAT BENEFITS DOES HYDROGEN PEROXIDE BRING TO MY GARDEN?

The reasons you should be using hydrogen peroxide in your garden are:

  1. Kills bacteria, viruses, and spores, overall keeps pests away.
  2. Helps fight root rot and fungi that can impede plant growth.
  3. Improves oxygen content in water, which your roots are always hungry for.
  4. Stimulates root growth and nutrient uptake. 
  5. Removes chlorine from water in a safe, easy way.
  6. Boosts overall plant growth and health in your garden.

USING HYDROGEN PEROXIDE FOR HYDROPONICS

As you start using hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), it's important that you're using the proper H2O2 in the correct concentrations to benefit your plants and your hydroponics garden. H2O2 comes in 3%, 5%, 8%, and also “food grade” concentrations. For uses in hydroponics, we recommend the foot grade concentrations that are usually 32% to 35%. 

HOW MUCH HYDROGEN PEROXIDE SHOULD I USE FOR MY PLANTS IN HYDROPONICS SETUPS?

First off, you should never add full-strength H2O2 into your reservoir. Always reduce the concentration of your H2O2 by mixing it 1 part H2O2 to 11 parts water (1:11). Using our 34% H2O2 as an example, this dilution ratio of 1:11 would give you 34% divided by 11 or 3.1% H2O2 in the newly mixed solution. This is close enough to 3% that we'll just refer to it as such. 

Now that you've diluted your hydrogen peroxide down to a 3% solution, we're ready to add it to your reservoir or feeding solution. The recommended amount of 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide per gallon of water in hydroponics is around 3ml per liter or 2.5 teaspoons (12ml) per gallon of reservoir water. Remember, you're not adding the 34% H2O2 at 12ml per gallon to your reservoir, you're adding 3% H2O2 at 12ml per gallon into your reservoir.

Every time you add H2O2 to your recirculating reservoir it should last about 4 days. If you are not using a recirculating reservoir, but instead using something like a drain-to-waste system, we then recommend adding H2O2 about once every week or two.
